Inner Visionary Verses – Personal Intuitive Insights #15 – Obedience versus Contentment

Something to really think about

The Well in the Garden

1l1

Power relationships are even more important to balance when they involve children and the issue of obedience to adults.  Is a child content because they are obedient or are they obedient because they are content?  What is better – a child who is obedient out of fear of chastisement through parental control or a child who is happy to comply with the wishes of his parents through the routine of loving, nurturing, stimulating encouragement and is therefore calm and content?  A quiet child is not always a happy child and a happy child is not always quiet, but a child who is happy and contented is more likely to be healthier than a child who is just quiet and obedient.
