I have to come back here just to mention a few things.
I apologize if I offended anyone. I understand this topic because of my past of which I’d done some things I’m not proud of. I also understand that my actions were really only reactions, emotions that controlled me. Even now, I still struggle with control of internal emotions. I hope all can understand that what was done to them was wrong, but being aware there is a problem is half the solution. A quarter of the solution is identifying what the problem is. The remaining quarter of the solution is changing/committing to doing things better than before.
I had many negative experiences. What I did notice is that when one cries, they lose a lot of energy. This is why I think short bits of exercise might be an alternative to the hitting that takes place. It can be fun as well, especially if everyone does it to improve the strength and health of the body that we need to live and learn. Once again, thanks YWN.June 29, 2021 6:31 am at 6:31 am #1986937AviraDeArahParticipant
IYK – I have to admit that I didn’t read your posts about your personal experiences; I apologize for being so forceful in my posts, and I realize I could have hurt your feelings. That was my own negligence, and again I’m very sorry.June 29, 2021 9:53 am at 9:53 am #1987022IYKParticipant
AAQ: you asked if I was a Baki shepherd. I must respond with the truth that I’m only a baki sheep. But knowledge about shepherding is readily available on the web to read. Reality is that hashem is our shepherd and we are supposed to try to be like our creator in the limited time span we have been given. But there are many lessons that hashem puts in nature for us to learn. Take for example, dogs. They all bark. The ones that bite, for example Pitt bulls, are not understood for the cause of such actions. I was always afraid of dogs, until someone with veterinary experience explained to me that he just sees Pitt bulls as high energy animals. If they get tied to a tree instead of channeling that energy in the form of running, they have pent up energy that will come out in the form of biting. Another reason dogs bite is out of fear due to being abused themselves. Lehavdil, this is the case similar to what abuse is about. I no longer fear Pitt bulls, because that person personally brought a hungry abused Pitt bull to me for my first healthy exposure to dogs. But children in my times and most likely nowadays as well, were not allowed to use our energy in a positive way, as recess was limited and homework was overburdening. Children tend to have a lot of energy that if channeled properly, can be more rewarding than stressful.
