I did not want to potentially hijack the thread in this post:
Galling Meeting Today! Truly Nauseating!
A couple comments were made there about this statement in today's WT. Then the WT study made it even worse. Paragraph 9 stated: "Humbly acknowledge your limitations and admit your mistakes".
I noticed this statement in par. 11, "Giving reasons helps. . .see your decisions are not. . .capricious but reasonable." The question was, "When appropriate, why is it wise to explain the reasons for a parental rule or decision?"
As there were not many in attendance the conductor called on OFS.
My comment was, "Capricious, meaning not logical, instructions might be blindly obeyed by some, but if the logical reasons for a rule or decision are plainly explained it makes it easier for a person to willingly comply or obey. And as this section is stressing, that would indicate humility on the part of the person who is in authority."
Afterwards I had many coming up to me saying how good that comment was. I wonder if they had a clue as to what I referred? Probably not. But I bet most here know.
