Demand obedience or command love-- you can't have both!






Yes, you're right, that's your child
Yours to discipline
Any way you see fit--
By screaming
By hitting
By demanding obedience


But don't expect hugs
And goodnight kisses
Or school-made cards that say "I love you!"


Your numb little robot
Can't express anything
That you don't teach it

Make up your mind...
You can't have it both ways.

This one is so good. There are so many of this type of parents, they really should wake up. Yes, they can't have it both ways. The child can only show love only when shown love.
