Unnecessary euphoria and fanatism

When our soccer city club lost three matches in a row and lost the first position for this season, everyone in the family, those who follow sports was very disappointed and they said they would stop watching soccer matches. When we said we were glad to hear that, my dad said:

- But only till the European soccer championship in June …

We disappointedly sighed while they laughed hard.

 

 

When we returned home after work on Monday, Mikey walked to us. He and Precious didn’t run toward us as usual. We knew something was wrong. My mom followed them and she looked at my Prince with a “Please, don’t” look. Then Mikey opened his mouth and said:

- Mamas and tata, I was a bad boy this morning. Ahem … Grandma told me a few times to put my dirty clothes in the basket but I wasn’t listening, I was on my tablet finishing some game … (short silence) …

Prince: What happened then, Mikey?

Mikey: Well, when she told me the fourth time to do it, I yelled at her to leave me alone.

Prince (angrily): YOU DID WHAAAT???

Mom: Son, please …

Prince: Mom, stay out of this, OK?

My Prince knelt and lifted Mikey’s head so he could watch him in his eyes. Then he said:

- Did you apologize to Grandma?

Mikey; Yes.

Prince: What did I say that would happen if you are verbally or physically aggressive to any member of the family, especially to females?

(Short silence)

Mikey: That you will spank me hard.

Prince: Do I always keep my promises?

Mikey: Yes, tata, you do.

My Prince took him into his arms and wanted to take him to the children’s room to spank him. My mom stepped in front of him to block him, but she moved when I sharply said to her: “Mooom!” She covered her eyes and sobbed quietly. You see, my mom would never tell us what Mikey did, but we are teaching our children to be truthful no matter how hard the consequences are. Anyway, we heard my Prince slapping Mikey’s butt, and we heard his cry. They came out of the room some time later exchanging kisses and hugs. Mikey knows we love him and that spanking was the natural result of his misbehaving. However, his picture of his tata as the best tata in the world didn’t change.

 

 

My Fran and I watched a Eurosong contest. My luvs don’t like it and they watched Scott Atkins's “Boyka” movie(s). They liked them and went to practice some of the moves right after. Of course, their wild sex under the shower afterwards, echoed the house. Anyway, without bias, our representative by the artistic name Baby Lasagna was the best and better than Nemo from Switzerland. The audience proclaimed Croat as the winner, but the judges pronounced Nemo. Oh, my, Croats didn’t like that at all, especially because Nemo was dressed like a girl and behaved like a girl. (For me and my Fran, Nemo was cute but most Croats still do not accept transgenders, homosexuals, lesbians, and bisexuals). My Fran showed me Croatians’ comments on TikTok and Facebook. I saw so much hate toward the groups of people I have just described and toward Israel whom they also blamed for setting up the voices of the judges. I couldn’t show it to my Prince for he would be very upset. Anyway, my Fran again showed me videos of Nemo’s arrival to Swiss and Marko’s arrival to Croatia. It is incomparable. While Nemo was barely welcomed by a few dozen people, dozens of thousands of people welcomed Marko at the main square in Zagreb. Why am I telling you this? Croatians are a very nationalistic, euphoric, and proud people. They hate everything and everyone that doesn’t fit in their moral, political, national, and similar shit box. I am glad for Marko but people started to worship him like he was some kind of saint or something. You should see the comments of praises on the social nets. Unnecessary euphoria and fanatism. I was the same before I met my Prince. He taught me to praise and give credit to everyone who deserves it but to avoid euphoria and fanatism.

Sometimes I ask myself, why? Why are humans often the way they are? Life could be so beautiful and perhaps simple, If there was a little more tolerance. It is an event where something like that should have no place. Music should actually connect, not serve as a platform for any political things or questions of faith. For me, the ESC is no longer what it was perhaps 25 - 30 years ago. Of course, you don't always have to like everything that's served to you. But what has often been presented there in recent years sometimes resembles a charade. At the end  - it's just music, something that is actually supposed to put you in a good mood.

 

It doesnt matter, it is music, Sports or the own idealogy. Humans are a strange Race.

Oh Mikey... My mom is the same way with the kids too she doesn't let my brother discipline the kids that way anymore. I was never really one for that way either. I'm too laid back but raising my voice seems to do the trick for Elena. Though it pains me to hear her cry I try my best to reason with her but she still needs more schooling to understand things better. :sweat_smile::heart:;):thumbsup:

> If you would believe me, my mom never hit me but if she did, most probably I would be a better person. My Prince really isn't for physical punishment of the children and he always cries when he is doing it. But he learned that most of the time reasoning with them isn't effective and that the fear of physical punishment keeps the children away from misbehaving. My Ivy and I agree because we saw the result of it. I am sure that if we were home, he would obey his grandma after the first time and he wouldn't even think to yell at her.

Consequences....... the concept seems to be lost in spite of the fact that it gives us a dependable moral compass (do something bad, expect to get punished sooner or later, so....is the punishment worth what ever little gain there is?)

 

At the same time the act of mercy can be described as not enforcing consequences even when they are expected. 

 

The hard thing is to balance mercy (what your mom wanted to do) and consequences (what your Prince did) , which , in my old fashion mind, speaks to the reason why children need to have both mothers (or grandmothers) and fathers (or grandfathers) raising them, working together to raise the best kids.

> This is what I responded to Jay-Omms:

But he learned that most of the time reasoning with them isn't effective and that the fear of physical punishment keeps the children away from misbehaving. He never punishes them after the first warning and without telling them why the things they do and say are wrong. So, he always makes sure they understand it and if they do it anyway, they choose to do it. My Ivy and I agree because we saw the result of it. I am sure that if we were home, he would obey his grandma after the first time and he wouldn't even think to yell at her.

> But I agree that mercy and justice always have to work together.

 

> I forgot to say one important thing. I would react the same way as my mother did if Precious should be spanked. (My Prince wouldn't do it because she is the girl, but my Ivy would). I couldn't punish her, but I could punish Mikey. Girls are more obedient than boys who require more discipline.
