“So the children should be handled very carefully and with love.
In fact I would say that you must keep them with love. If you find any bad behaviour in them or negative activity then observe it three-four times and then peacefully sit with them and tell them that it is not good.
You will be surprised to see that if you behave with them properly and with love then they will be afraid to loose your love and will correct themselves fully. But if you have never shown your love to your child and always tried to correct him “Keep this here, keep this there, arrange this, do like this, do like that etc.” then the children will think that it is your habit to always say like this and they will not give importance to what you say. So your behaviour has to be integrated.” – Shri Mataji, 15 December 1983
