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.

Saivites consider it most important to live near a Siva temple, and we build one wherever we find ourselves in the world. This is a most meritorious act, earning blessings in this life and the next.
