Be Firm but Kind with Children

Cybertalk: Bodhinatha gives a wonderful upadesha based on the Living with Siva lesson of the day (178) called "Be Firm but Kind." This is one of the Positive Discipline principles. Children today must be told the reasons why for instructions and directions given to them, and such directions must be given in a kindly manner. The problem of giving directions in the form of questions is also discussed.

This inner light is so beautiful. All day long my head has been filled with light. It feels that if I were to reach up and put both hands around the top of my head, there wouldn't be a head there.
