Currently I'm blogging inside a train going to Singapore..But my destination is Segamat..bkn Singapore ya..
Seating in front of me was an Indon nanny babysitting an Indian girl. The girl's mom was seating in parallel with my seat. The girl was shouting and screaming *very bad behave* and I can see that the nanny is quite depressed by the child's behaviour.. Not excluding me.. Aiyaa.. sakit telinga woo dengar tu budak jerit2..She even throw her food on the floor..Poor Makcik cleaner..she had to clean it all over again..
The little girl's mother can't stand her child's behavior so she rushes to the girl's seat and she slap her. The girl was like shocked. And yes she cried..but not too long.. I guess she already get used to that situation.. Waa..I can't stand the 'picture' I saw in front of me. How could a mom slap her own child.. ya..maybe she's was educating (did I say educating? more like torturing..) her to be well behave.. but imagine what will be the understanding of the child? Later when she grew up, she'll do the same because she thinks that it is not wrong to do it.. I've imagined myself in the girl's mother's shoes. I see myself not slapping my son. but gave him what he want. If he cannot get what he wants, just say no.. Haven are behaving quite satisfying currently. He knew when I said 'NO' means he cannot. So he will not insist. Sometimes when he insisted, I gave him other option. And it always worked. In my opinion, I can't always give him what he wants. Or else, he will be spoiled.
When I was in my childhood, my dad always says 'NO' and it makes me angry...because my friends always gets what they want, but me? A big 'NO' from my dad. My life as a child is full of punishments. But I never blamed my dad. Some might say that it will give a bad influence in the future of the child. But I see it from a different view. He teaches me not to be like him. Ya, me and my other siblings always got to do the 'ketuk ketampi' or 'injut' in sabahan dialect, not in the house. But infront of my neighbour house.!!
Konfem la bha malu.. But those are sweets memories.. Reminiscing the pasts makes me laugh..Skarang bila suda besar semua, my dad x suda dapat denda.. dia pla yg pndai ada angin kol2 kami semua adik beradik.. "saya pndai rindu kamu oh.." haha.. so sweet la my dad..Eh.. back to the topic!
Well.. Who am I to tell.. Other people got their own ways of treating their children. And I'm only a newbies. But, do we have to beat them?Huhu..
Child is the most fragile thing in the world...huhu..how cud a mother beat her own little girl?
