The foremost question will get to those who are teachers, “is slapping someone a crime?” My father used to say that our teachers used to beat us to death when the homework did not complete on time.

However, slapping to our kids is a common problem among everyone. However, almost all regret upon it later and feels bad about it. The reasons are simple, it is due to work. All the day we work in the office, in an urban lifestyle, both husband and wife work. However, this is a required thing to meet daily expenses. It is common that when we come back to home in the evening, we carry our children from the daycare (actually it was the work of grandparents). There is no deep attachment we build due to timing issues. Therefore, we forget that it is our children and giving them time is must. When we have already burned the energy for the day, then no one can expect to spend extra hours with their kids.

We carry all the stupid memories at home and the same carried over at home, and thus there is a massive loss of our child. It is only realized when the time already slipped out of our hand.

Is Slapping is good for our kid?

When we go home, we already tired, we try to watch TV, while your kid alone at the daycare comes to you and fling on you for some love. Here we should understand their loneliness. Some who love handling kids, they have no issues. However, one who dislikes playing around with them, you warn the child twice and thrice, then you slap them. The kids do it again and again. Thus, it becomes annoying to both. You keep slapping, furthermore, you don’t realize that he was alone for the entire day, waiting for his/her father and mother in hope that when they will come and hug me? As well as, we did not realize that he already got some slaps and scolding at the daycare already for sure. Those memories make your child more stubborn, which reflects when he becomes an adult.

Getting to know what your kid wants

This question might feel very difficult for you, but it is a significant thing. All the day we talk about office, money, property. Thus, from all these whole things, we hardly think about our child – twice, one at the time to drop at the daycare and second time when we go to pick them. As we have got the habit of dealing everything by money, we do a lot of shopping, open saving accounts for them. But when we grew up in such habitat, later in our old age we realise that our child earned nothing. He sells the property and eats free at home without working anywhere. It could have not done all these things if we focus on their development properly. If we plan their education, cultured them time to time and make them realize their responsibility by choosing to earn and learn, would have been a great difference.

To Avoid slapping, being a kid to your kids is what they expect

Remember, this is usually used to happen or be done at the village by grandpa. If you are staying husband and wife, then you have to fulfil the absence of your father and mother. If you are not doing so, then definitely your kids will adopt unending and unwanted behaviour. Therefore, you will feel strange. In fact, it is not strange at all, it is all normal. What you have to do is, without the grandparents, you have to handle your kids the same way your grandparent does. You have to make a great friendship with your kids, then see how they listen to you and obey only your instructions.

How to become a friend of your children?

It is as simple as that, you have to study how the friendship between grandparent and kids grow up with the time. They do anything they want, grandpa get slaps, become a dog, horse, take them to walk and whatever the kids feel, they do. For a child, it becomes easy being with grandparents. The kids feel safer on their lap and shoulders. I never see old man slap children. They are always best friends. Thus, you will never feel is slapping someone a crime.
