Veera did an exclusive interview with The Hollywood Sentinel recently, and the following text below is an excerpt of that highly valuable, important and educational discussion, concerning how to improve one’s life through self-esteem, and an answer regarding the debate of, “Should children be spanked?”

Hollywood Sentinel: There is a debate concerning parenting, regarding corporal punishment. Some see this as abuse, whereas others do not. Do you feel that a child should be spanked at school or home? If so, why, and if not, why not and what is the solution to discipline?

Veera Mahajan: I am not for corporal punishment. If we listen and talk peacefully, I think we can also teach our children how to listen and talk their differences out. We do not need to scream, fight, and hit to make our point.

When we scream at our children or hit them, I think we are frustrated at our own failure at the ability to communicate. In the process, we teach our children that that is the correct way to be heard or respected. So the problem keeps going on an and on throughout the generations. We need to stop the use of force and anger, and learn to listen to our children, and teach them how to listen too.

“UNREPORTED; Learning to LIVE Free”

Veera states, “Since the very beginning, we are made to feel bad about taking care of ourselves. We are told it is selfish if we think about our own happiness. So we learn to take care of other people, and when we don’t get the care back, we start building resentment. We expect people we care about to care about us, and when we don’t get it, we are disappointed and hate it. Hate makes us fight and be mean to each other. If we teach our children to love themselves, they will have better expectations from their relationships. We expect less than respect because we don’t love ourselves enough to believe that we deserve the best.”

Veera adds; “It is important to be optimistic most of the time. When you or anyone is working hard and smart towards any goal, and you have setbacks on the way, it is good to stay optimistic and not give up. You learn from your mistake of what not to do, and what to do next time until you reach your goal.”

We do not need to scream, fight, and hit to make our point. When we scream at our children or hit them, I think we are frustrated at our own failure at the ability to communicate.” – Veera Mahajan; Author of “Unreported: Learning to Live Free”

Good Physical Health Improves Good Mental Health

Veera states, “Taking care of your physical self lets you see positive results. Once you learn that positive things happen with healthy habits, it teaches you to build a healthy and positive attitude towards everything else you do in life. So, I think to maintain a positive attitude; maintain a healthy body. It takes a positive self-image and positive mental attitude to maintain good physical health.”
