Let­ter writer shocked by fa­ther who dragged daugh­ter out of clinic

7 Days in Dubai - - PUZZLES -

“We do not know the ex­act cir­cum­stances and the fa­ther may be wrong, but truth is many chil­dren are undis­ci­plined. Back in our days, chil­dren would get the rod or stick or belt, and that taught them to be po­lite, and they grew up to be de­cent, pro­duc­tive mem­bers of so­ci­ety.”

“Just won­der­ing what the sit­u­a­tion was in the first place. If the fa­ther was be­ing ver­bally abu­sive bully to­wards the girl, then I can com­pletely un­der­stand want­ing to in­ter­fere. How­ever, I too have been stared at, talked to, etc. by oth­ers just for rais­ing my voice at my child. Also, if a child is throw­ing a tantrum the best thing you can do is re­move them from the sit­u­a­tion.”
