Seeking One More Light
“Seeking One More Light”
When parents don’t agree with their childrens’ behaviors . . .
Some parents punish their children by putting them into a dark room
Some parents do it literally, turning off the lights and locking the doors
Others do it by giving the silent treatment and cutting off communication with their child
Others do it by taking away all contact with others
Others do it by cutting off access to the internet, other media, and reading materials
It is “for the good of the child”
To teach the child patterns of guilt
To teach the child what it feels like to be removed from positive stimulus
To teach the child that there are consequences for not following directives
Some children rebel by seeking and sharing new sources of light
Children generally want lights
They want new sources of ideas, and energetic feedback patterns
Children grow and thrive in the lights
Today, have your actions or inactions brought more lights to others?
Or have you cut others off from the sources of light that feed their minds and their good efforts?

I am grateful to so many people, who have from time to time, had the strength, education, and stamina to share their lights. Sharing light has never been easy.
