  1. Sometimes I learnt very good things or stop some missbehaviour because my parents or teachers punished me.They punish or advice us with good intention to make us good people.If someone grows up with bad habits and behaviors it is very difficult change them in older age.Then they will get a bigger punishment from authorities or society.Their life after death also will be painful. So children should not be angry or unhappy when parents or teachers punish them.

    • If you break the precepts life will punish you! If you harm living beings they will harm you back. If you steal no-one will trust you. It you commit sexual misconduct people will be disgusted with you an no-one will want to marry you. If you tell lies no-one will believe what you say. If you drink alcohol and/or take drugs you will lose you home and job and have to sleep on the street as a homeless person. Bad behavior is just not worth it!
