Education of children - make them realize the existence of laws

How many parents and teachers understand the difference between love and weakness? They do not know how to show children that there are implacable laws which everyone, young and old, must accept. ‘And what if these poor children cry?' you ask. Let them cry! They must understand that everyone has to submit to these laws. As soon as a child cries, everyone gives in so that the little darling is not unhappy. Well, at this point the battle is lost: they will always give in, and it is these same parents and teachers who one day will suffer because they have confused love with weakness. Is he crying? Let him cry a little, he is exercising his vocal chords, and at the same time he is learning that there are laws to be understood and respected.
