Objurgating: Bill O'Reilly's Word of the Day on Fox News Channel's The O'Reilly Factor
To Objurgate Is Not a Good Thing
- Have any of you ever been guilty of objurgating? If you are a parent, I urge you to take another approach, as objurgating means to scold or berate someone. No one likes to be the victim of objurgation, as it is humiliating, and it is very painful.
- You don't have to touch a child to inflict pain that will stay with them their entire life (although scolding can also be in the form of physical abuse).
- Instead of objurgating/scolding/berating, a parent should focus on teaching children to do what you want them to do (chores, eat their vegetables, go to bed when they are supposed to) in a more effective manner. There are methods for encouraging good behavior and discouraging the bad behavior (fighting, tantrums, whining), such as praise for good behavior, time out or simple verbal reasoning.
- There are many great books available that can offer more in-depth details on how to incorporate these methods into your dealings with your own children. I urge you to seek them out and have listed a few at the end of this article.
- Focus on strengthening the bond between you and your child instead of tearing down and destroying those bonds.
