A new proverb has been posted to Mishlei 13-23 on Tuesday, Rosh Chodesh Ellul.This proverb analyzes the motivation of the parent who cannot bring himself to punish his son. Whereas the parent fools himself into thinking he is acting out of love, the proverb is telling us that he is building a relationship of enmity and hatred. In contrast, it is the parent that applies disciplinary measures tempered with wisdom, who truly loves his child.
