Re: Is punishment of children required?

Punishing seems to come from frustration, losing patience, having the experience to lose control over 'the outer' by the feeling of self, and so definitely wanting to have that control back. Frustration is just like accompanying anger based on a desire. And desire is based on the experience of self...
