The cry of missing infancy
Malia had a cry that was half a tantrum, for having been corrected and half a missing infancy. Being in the infant room there is a yearning to return to the familiar condition of being cared for. If they are not impressed upon that they must serve others, they will continue to use the resources of the family without care.
Caidence seemed alerted to her problem and quickly gave comforting pats to her little friend. We aren't babies anymore, the pats seemed to say.
Caidence has an ambitious spirit and her eyes are always looking for the next hill to climb, while Malia is the more romantic of the two. She is nurturing fond memories and storing them up.
The sharing drills were funny between them. THey don't fully understand the drill yet. Having a beginning and an end of sharing time might help their understanding a bit. If a little princess doesn't learn the reality of disappointment she won't be able to judge the weight of her words upon others.
Everyone has to submit to a higher authority. It hurts when you don't get your way. You might cry, you mustn't have a tantrum. Submitting to people is of far less consequences than submitting to God. Gods ways are far above our ways and his judgments past finding out, but there are eternal consequences. Because of this truth, I believe spankings of greatest importance to the most affluent and Royal, to whom their words will have the greatest consequence to others. Avoid Hell, at all cost is the expression. When we spank them soundly, we give them a standard of pain that they would only inflict when absolutely necessary.
I would have spanked Malia, were she my child for not wanting to listen to Ms Janet and disrespectful, exaggerated expression. I might have been wrong, to have placed upon her my impression. I don't think so though. Her mother is right to use the term, Get in control! That is the goal. Getting the emotions in control. Sometimes in daycare they spin out of control and all of the emotions ie. Missing mommy and anger of the situation and the occasion which caused the problem get all squeezed together and can't be put into words. More understanding is needed to untangle the emotional element from the conflict itself, or no lessons can be really learned. They are conflagrated together into a mesh of "I miss mommy".
