The Sturdy Wall ...
By JourneyofLife on March 22, 2012
I remember when I was much younger. Just like any sibling rivalry, I fought a lot with my older brother. And our father would spank us (okay ... more like mere slaps on our behinds) and still my brother’s crying sound could be heard from across the rooms. Then I heard whispered voices, “How come you only spank one but not the other?” – My mother would say. Then I heard an answer from my father, “I gave them both, but your stubborn daughter won’t cry.” – Um… I did! Silently.
Stubborn children are like the sturdy walls; we don’t cry often, we don’t give in. The harder you push us; we would be as silent as the wall.And we won't budge!
