Teach Him, Don't Mistreat Him

by Lionel C. Whitehead

She screamed at him.
She cursed and called him names
He held his little head down in shame
His friends they laugh and joked
After the horrible words his mother spoke

He moved to the corner of the porch 
Alone, he hung his little head trying to figure
What heíd done wrong.
He sat like that until his little friends 
Had gone back into the house 
Where they belonged

A child should never be called a bad child.
His Aunt Linda lashed out at her
If you call them a bad child 
Then bad behavior will come forth 

She took the young mother by the hand
Sat her down and said to her 
I need for you to understand
Heís six years old, not a man

You the mother rock the crib
Of his life, what you put in him
Is what comes out. 
So little sister watch your mouth.

If you raise him right 
The police and authority just might escape 
Being a part of his life.
If he is bad, thatís awful sad
Because that is the label that you gave them.
My sister please donít do that to him.

Heís just a child
Innocent yet, my sister 
This please never forget.

He knows no difference between good or bad. 
You are the tree that feeds him 
The knowledge of good and evil. 
He is just the receiver
You are really the bad one.

You see it is really true
When a child is in its first body,
Up to the age of seven,
His mother and father is his heaven

It knows no difference between good and bad. 
You started feeding him this knowledge 
Of good and evil 
When he was about four months old.
Heís just the receiver.
Now all you do to him is scolded him
Put him down, in front of his friends
And anyone around.

Look at that confused little frown
Itís not him that is failing you, 
Itís you that is failing him.
In the way that you are raising him.

ďHave you been good today? I heard you say
That child knew nothing of good, 
Had no concept of good. 
Had no perception of good, 
But you fed that perception to him
And to this day you are still feeding it to him.
ďOut of the abundance of the heart, 
The mouth speaksí
Speaking is not only speaking words 
Through your mouth. 
Speaking is what you say consciously
And what you say subjectively or subconsciously 
Because out of the abundance of the heart,
The mouth speaks. 
A parent should never say anything to a child
That he or she can not repeat.

When children come to earth 
They come just like they have no concept 
Of duality in nature, because they come in oneness. 
In holiness, in innocence.

All they know is when something is out of order, 
Their job is to cry and send a signal 
So that their need is met. 
They come from a realm where there is no lack. 
What God reveals in the spirit realm supercedes the facts.
So, call that child to you, 
and apologize to him for putting him down 
and treating him like that. 
Teach him, do not mistreat him
Love him, do not abuse him
School him, do not misuse him
And others will find it hard to use him.

Help him to understand what it that heís done wrong
Just do not discipline him and leave him hurt, confused
Embarrassed and standing alone. 
Especially when you are in the wrong.
All he know is when something is out of order, 
His job is to cry and send a signal 
So that his need is met. 
He came from a realm where there is no lack. 
What God reveals in the spirit realm supercedes the facts.
If you open your bible and read it, the bible will reveal that.
