Award-winning gospel singer, Diana Hamilton has said in an interview that caning your kids is not the best way to discipline them.
According to her, she was never caned by her parents when she was a kid so she doesn’t see the necessity for caning children even if they mess up.
Meanwhile, the bible says in Proverbs 22:15 “Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.”
Speaking in an interview with Kastle FM’s Amansan Krakye, the singer said;
“It’s so funny that my mum and dad never lashed me when I was growing up. So for me caning isn’t the first thing when it comes to how I would like to discipline my kids,”
“There are other ways we can use to discipline children when it comes to ensuring their proper upbringing. By God’s grace we’ll continue to pray for our kids because I always say that my mother prayed us into life,” Diana Hamilton continued.
“My mum never used a cane on me but due to her prayers for us and once in a while using the cane to hit the table but never touched us with the cane,” she disclosed.
“We were very careful not to offend our mother and that’s what we plead with God to help us to be able to lead our children but there are other ways that can be used to discipline a child without necessarily using a cane or hitting them with your hand,” the UK-based singer concluded
