Tuesday Writings-#No 17- Do Not Wrap In Cotton Wool

Do Not Wrap In Cotton Wool

Prompts this week: coddle, scold, coercive

People seek to coddle
Wrapping in cotton wool
Those who cannot handle reality
But a few scolds
Are not coercive
Are not harmful
Done that right way
Unless the child
Has grown to adulthood
Believing they can do no wrong
Then they may not be able to be saved
From their own behaviour
God save us from theirs.
