Love or fear?

06 January 2015, 13:24

Yesterday evening I was walking by a neighborhood and I saw 2 children, a boy and a girl of about 5 yrs old, in serious dispute and fighting. Then the Boy said to the Girl, go tell your Mummy.

Only God knows what He wanted her to go and tell her Mummy. I was so surprised at the little girl's reaction and felt for her when she started pleading and promising the boy ice- creams, cheese balls and other things.

Then this Question came to my mind, why would this little girl be so afraid and scared? After all it's her mother! And the response I got is that most parents have become a monster to their children these days and the children in return fear their parents instead Of loving them.

At any slight provocation they strike the little child, therefore reducing their potential and creating fear in their precious little mind. This in-turn affects the society.

What happened to Prov. 22vs6?

So my question is this, do you think in any way that it is right to fear one's parents instead of loving them?

Please be free to contribute.

Thank You.
