To Study War No More: Taking The Conflict Away
Avoid fighting your horse. Avoid fighting your children.
Do not be afraid to be a peacemaker. Raise your kids and your horses the same way--51% control and 49% affection.
Without control your horse becomes a rogue and your child will become a defendant. Without affection your horse grows afraid and your child grows cold, very cold.
The trainer must inspire confidence in the horse. The parent must inspire confidence in the child.
I am tired of training horses who were allowed to run over people and I am even more tired of prosecuting kids for the crime of having weak parents.
The truth is in the round pen.
The harsher truth is in the courtroom.
