Hi all, This is a gripe but not mine. My maid's. Yesterday she came with a complaint. About the misbehaviour of her neighbours child. The girl is about 10 years old. the maid's son is very young, about 5years. The boy was standing there watching the garbage burning nearby. This girl had a polythene cover in her hands. That started burning, maybe by accident. she threw the cover at this boy and ran off, the burning polythene cover fell on his foot and got stuck. Noone could remove it. She had to take him to the hospital for treatment. That girl's mother didn't even come to see the boy or scold her child for the mistake the girl commited. There are many like this happening around. Parents can teach the child to avoid such things in the future and also what they can do to help in times of emergencies like these?

problematic child - needs to be discipline
hello madlees, thats so sad to hear.. i really believe parents should be responsible to educate and nurture their children's future.. incidents like this, should be count in of behavioral conditioning. they should be feeling liable, that their child hurt someone else, or their child had a fault. doing such considerations and acting like nothing happened.. will provoke the childs brain saying she didnt do it wrong.. or she has no reason to be sorry.. thus in future, if she gets in obvious fault, she considers it as nothing.. because her conditioning was to be not blamable in her actions. if they didnt correct the deed, it will lead a problematic child to a crooked future. i hope the parents of that girl will get some conscience, i pray they will realize what they have done, specially not being liable and responsible to their daughters fault. take care^_^

The child should be made to realise that she has hurt another child and has to say sorry atleast even if she couldn't do anything herself. She should have had to call some elders nearby and tell them what had happened? isn't it? If it was her younger brother would she or her parents have kept quiet??

she must, indeed say sorry.. if i was her parent, i would be liable for that, get the hospital bill.. and teach her that what she did is wrong! i dont know why some parents wont care about it..

That's the same thing which worries me.. Many of the parents don't just talk with the kids. They do not have the time for it. If you can spend some quality time with them, helping them to adjust with other kids in the locality or in school , will change the environment. It is parental responsibility..

This unfortunately is a common thing these days. Some parents just really couldnt care less. i have a four year old son who isnt exactly an angel, he has his moments but generally is very good.

Hi, Many of the kids are not angels, they are naughty and mischievous. If the parents try and teach them when they are doing wrong, these incidents will not happen. The kids do not know what is wrong and what is not. They have to be corrected by the parents. Don't you think so, Simonslater? Kids are naturally naughty and like to do mischief but we have to be strict when that naughtiness turns into something serious and hurts others. Thanks for your response

Hi madlees, This is sad! I just hope the little chap is doing okay now. What the girl did was not right , not in the least. But we cannot count on it since a child herself she did it out of instinct to save herself. (That's what I got from your discussion). However, the parents' behavior has to be highly screened. THis careless attitude going to harm them in future as their kids would imbibe this behavioral pattern as well! I think, the general awareness is too little and too less. Proper parenting is such a rare term nowadays that I pity the poor children. Thanks.

Yes Mimpi, I also think she did it to save herself. That's what I also believe, but then how can the parents keep quiet? that's my question? Isn't there a responsibility that they have to teach their child that she had done wrong. But anyway, he is better now, Thanks mimpi. but still the wound is watery and not dried up as yet. These people will not go to the doctor regularly.
