Love is a potent emotion that can actually give life, and give life back as well.
In Indian mythology, there is a story of Savitri who actually followed "YAMA", the God of Death and brought her husband back to life from Yama. So, when we talk of disciplining our children, this has to be tempered with the constant background of love. Love achieves miracles at any age.
Many a time, as in case of working parents, it has been seen that children perceive this as " minus parents", even though both parents might be working out of economic necessity. Their love is perceived as not being translated into time, and therefore, less hours of love and nurturing coming their way.
There is a difference between pure love and obsessive love. Young moms need to understand the difference. Pure love is always balanced with responsible upbringing of the child, creating a wholesome, happy personality. Obsessive love can be possessive and can deprive a child of a balanced exposure and curb its natural tendencies of discovery, exploration and a sense of adventure.
So, love is the prime energy. Use it towards making your child a happy and loving child. Good luck.
