There’s a man sitting at a bar just looking at his drink. He stays like that for half an hour. Then, a big trouble-making truck driver steps next to him, takes the drink from the guy, and just drinks it all down.
The poor man starts crying. The truck driver says, “Come on man, I was just joking. Here, I’ll buy you another drink. I just can’t stand seeing a man crying.”
“No, it’s not that. This day is the worst of my life. First, I fall asleep, and I’m late to my office. My boss, in an outrage, fires me. When I leave the building to my car, I found out it was stolen. The police say they can do nothing. I get a cab to return home and when I leave it, I remember I left my wallet and credit cards there. The cab driver just drives away. I go home and my wife wanted a divorce. I leave home and come to this bar. And when I was thinking about putting an end to my life, you show up and drink my poison.”

Once upon a time a married couple celebrated their 25th marriage
anniversary. They had become famous in the city for not having a single
conflict in their period of 25 years. Local newspaper editors had
gathered at the occasion to find out the secret of their well known
“happy going marriage”.
Editor: “Sir. It’s amazingly unbelievable. How did you make this possible? ”
Husband recalling his old honeymoon days said: “After marriage, during our honeymoon we went horse riding on different horses. My horse was pretty okay but the horse on which my wife was riding seemed to be a crazy one. On the way ahead, that horse jumped suddenly, making my wife topple over. Recovering her position from the ground, she patted the horse’s back and said “This is your first time.” She again climbed the horse and continued with the ride. After a while, it happened again. This time she again kept calm and said “This is your second time” and hopped back on the horse and continued riding. When the horse dropped her third time, she silently took out the revolver from the purse and shot the horse dead!!
I shouted at my wife: “What did you do, you psycho. You killed the poor animal. Are you crazy?”
She gave a silent look and said: “This is your first time!!!”
Husband: “Well, that’s it. We are happy ever after.”
Parents who abuse their children are in need of help. A child and adolescent psychiatrist said one in three parents who grow up in a physically abusive environment tends to be abusive towards his or her children.
Those who were abused as a child often used the same cruel methods in disciplining their children. Even though they had suffered abuses, they become abusive parents because that’s the only way they knew how to deal with children.
Those who grew up in an authoritarian environment were unable to resolve the issues they faced and thus vent their frustrations on the young ones. Their anger is displaced and when a child makes a minor mistake, they hit him.
However, two-thirds of parents do learn other ways of disciplining their children, whether through exposure to other role models or by learning them on their own. Some parents argue that they hit their children because they are trying to teach their children well but if they are honest, they will admit that they are venting their anger.
Parents often choose physical punishment over the non-physical method because it is faster and easier.
