When a child hits a child, we call it aggression. When a child hits an adult, we call it hostility. When an adult hits an adult, we call it assault. All these behaviours are perceived as negative behaviours. But, somewhere along the line, when an adult hits a child, we call it discipline.
Traditions, as we mostly know, are the stories, beliefs, customs and routines that were passed on to us from older generations. Without a doubt family traditions are important.
