Divyaa – you ain’t a mother so you would’nt know!
Ah! To be dealing with kids I don’t need to be a mother at the first place …..and dealing with 30 odd kids in the last 3 months helps me understand their PSYCHOLOGY well too….
Today a parent happened to discuss with me about discipline lessons through shlokas….
Parent: My son would never listen….Its going to be hard on you Divyaa, really hard!!
Me: Dont worry…I will take care of him in class…
Parent: Your not a mother, you don’t have kids …so you would’nt know…
Me: Taken a back…..(A few things can be said in better ways — maybe she did’nt mean what she said…but it did hurt me)
Parent: We know our kids better
Me: In class…..I deal with them…So I sure know how to deal with them and in class all the kids listen …so your kid would follow!( (Smilingly walked away)
I personally feel that HARSH WORDS don’t have to be returned in equal or more measure….I just walked away – my way of dealing with it:)
