Violence is one of the oldest emotions of mankind. It dates back to the story of Cain and Abel. Why does man feel violence brings about workable solutions when he has proved over and over that it does not?
Violence stems from one’s inability to think and act logically and responsibly. Leading factors in promoting and maintaining violence are anger, greed and revenge. This article will give specific ways you can help your child overcome violence within himself and others.
Wikipedia defines violence is ”the use of physical force to apply a state to others contrary to their wishes.” That state can be physical, mental, emotional or a combination thereof. Ask yourself, “Do I enjoy making other people unhappy? Do I intentionally do things to cause mental or physical anguish? ” If the answer is Yes to either of these questions, ask a third one. ”Do I receive pleasure in doing it?” This is a self-evaluation process one should give serious thought to. Evil thoughts and actions, whether overt or covert, can be contributors to your child’s violent behavior.
The first years of a child’s life are dominated by thoughts and actions of parents. His foundation is molded and shaped by principles that you set-up to guide and govern him. Lasting impressions are made more by observation than words. The old “do as I say, but not as I do” simply does not work. All behavior is learned inclusive of violent behavior.
