I have just returned from my fellowship gathering. One 'brother' (supposedly 'Brother' because he was baptized a couple of years ago) stood up and told how he couldn't tolerate bad behavior from his kids and proudly prolaimed how he used 'force' oh his kids. I shook my head and said,... Continue reading

I like this article. I have been too eager to teach my child empathy. He laughs when other kids cry. But I am not convinced that he's unfeeling. He's the only one in class who would go and help another child with problem in walking, whilst the rest of the... Continue reading
