Family Arguments

So today my family and I had a conversation on abuse of students at school! Seeing as how I live in a country that was colonised by the British, and also seeing as how my parents and I grew up in different eras of this country, we have different opinions on issues concerning the physical abuse of students at school……
I was basically saying that there are punishments given by the education system working in this country that are not fair like slapping a child for answering a question wrong or beating a child for wearing their uniform wrong! My parent’s response was “ Discipline is important…. If you were obedient there would be no need for the Teacher to discipline you… ”
It was then that I realised that my parents still had the colonial mindset that submitted to authority and didn’t speak up and have a voice against things that would possibly be harmful to a person’s confidence and esteem! I however believe that every person should be able to STAND UP for what they believe in! Do not for any reason let your voice be muffled. I am not saying that you should not be submissive to authority because I believe authority is from God, what I am saying is that when you see that your rights are being abused, do not swallow and take it…. Talk and communicate your feelings and opinions

Rants.. Bare with me ☺

  1. Might I ask what country that is, if it’s okay with you? My country was colonised by the French, and the Brits wanted part of it but kinda sucked at that.

      1. Hahah I do know of it. I’ve always wanted to go to see what Africa’s like. It’s close to where I live, but I haven’t had the chance to leave the country.

      2. Oh you would love Africa then…. Don’t listen to the stereotypical stuff they say about it, it’s actually a beautiful place. Though there are bad things, I believe the good outweighs the bad.
        Speaking of, I’ve never been to Asia! It’s so cool that you’re from there! ☺
