sometimes i do find it hard to discipline my daughter when it’s come to house work. such as she will tend to put her veil everywhere after prayer… never to fold it. i’ve been telling her over and over to fold her veil properly after prayer… until i have lost my patience…

one day i warn her that if i caught her not folding her veil, i will cane her…

once… i gave her warning and remind of the punishment…

twice… again i warned her…

the third time… i cane her without saying anything first… she was stunned… then i told her the reason i canned her…

surprisingly…. until now… she fold her veil after prayer… 🙂

from this i learned that… do let your kids know of the circumstances of not obeying you… and negotiate what kind of punishment they are willing to receive if they do not obey… this way they will accept their fault with open mind and open heart.
