Allra käraste syster

When I was about 20 years old, I met an old pastor’s wife who told me that when she was young and had her first child, she didn’t believe in striking children, although spanking kids with a switch pulled from a tree was standard punishment at the time. But one day when her son was four or five, he did something that she felt warranted a spanking—the first of his life. And she told him that he would have to go outside and find a switch for her to hit him with. The boy was gone a long time. And when he came back in, he was crying. He said to her, “Mama, I couldn’t find a switch, but here’s a rock that you can throw at me.”

All of a sudden the mother understood how the situation felt from the child’s point of view: that if my mother wants to hurt me, then it makes no difference what she does it with; she might as well do it with a stone. And the mother took the boy onto her lap and they both cried. Then she laid the rock on a shelf in the kitchen to remind herself forever: never violence. And that is something I think everyone should keep in mind. Because violence begins in the nursery—one can raise children into violence.

Give the children love, more love and still more love – and the common sense will come by itself.

Du varg, du varg, kom inte hit.

followingthebloodsteps:

Vargen ylar i nattens skog,
han vill men kan inte sova…
Hungern river hans vargabuk,
o det är kallt i hans stova…

Du varg. Du varg, kom inte hit, ungen min får du aldrig…

Vargen ylar i nattens skog,
ylar av hunger och klagan…
Men jag ska ge’n en grisasvans…
sånt passar i vargamagar

Du varg. Du varg, kom inte hit, ungen min får du aldrig…

Sov mitt barn i bädden hos mor,
låt vargen yla i natten…
Men jag ska ge’n en hönsaskank,
om ingen annan har tatt ‘en…

du varg, du varg kom inte hit, ungen min får du aldrig.
ungen min får du aldrig….

Perfect I-have-a-cold-and-everything-hurts reading!

Fictional Favourites [3/10]: Jonathan Lionheart, The Brothers Lionheart

"But then Jonathan said it was something he must do, even if it was dangerous. ‘Why?’ I wondered. ‘Otherwise you’re not a human being but just a piece of dirt’ said Jonathan."
