I am so thankful that this morning, I did not nag my girls to wake up here at home. The moment that my husband called me on the phone, I immediately woke the kids up to get ready. Mariel did the cooking for our rice while I fried our rice from last night, heat the viand and fried some hotdogs. Mj assists us all the way. It was indeed a very quiet morning and we had fun talking about things on our breakfast.
We know that our kids get stubborn even ones to those who are already in college. But no matter how stubborn they are, no one has the right to hit our children. I was so pissed off when I saw that video in the news; a professor attacked and berated a student in Manila during the first day of classes. Yes we don’t know the other side of the story but still he doesn’t have any rights to attack a student like that, especially when the student is a girl. It is good that the school management terminated the professor immediately. Aren’t they, the students were the one paying the professors in school? I am not saying that the teacher does not have the right to discipline students or pupils, but one should not abused their power and authority, he should not hit any students, boy or girls at school. I admit, I also get lose my patient with my kids and sometimes I would use a belt but I always see to it I don’t go beyond, 3 or 4 times spanking would be enough and if I am still mad at what they did, I walk out, as my husband always told me, go out when you still can or before anything else happens. But with my niece who is already in college and is living with me, I already don’t spank her, I reprimanded her for like many times in a day or I always reminding her of this and that. The professor did to the student is already beyond the limits, especially when he is only a teacher and not a parent.
