When your child snarls at you, what would happen if you summoned up all your emotional generosity, and simply offered love?
I know, you want to raise a child who acts right. You certainly don’t want to reward bad behavior. But think about those times when you’re at the end of your rope, and before you know it, you’ve raised your voice. Wouldn’t it help you more to get a hug than a reprimand?
As the Dalai Lama says,“Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.”
