I LOVE the Rugby World Cup – although in the spirit of full disclosure I should add I don’t know all that much about the game itself. I wouldn’t know a ruck from a maul if it happened in my living room and the rules have me stumped. Except for the forward pass one: a player throws the ball ahead of him and if his teammate catches it he’s in trouble. I get it. I also know the ref is rarely, if ever, on our side and if we lose it’s usually his fault. But there’s something about the whole spectacle that’s just so great, starting with the national anthem. Watching Siya and the boys, arms around each other, faces turned towards the heavens, tears streaking down their cheeks as they sing…

SMALL WONDER LAST Thursday, during my lunch hour, I stood in the foyer of my company’s building and gasped in sheer amazement! There before me was a little black caterpillar, crawling innocently along the floor. It was in that moment that I breathed in life’s meaning amid all the madness and negativity in South Africa. To see something so small calmed me. A creature so fragile made me realise that there is positivity despite all of our country’s suffering, turmoil and pain. Luckily, a passerby quickly scooped up the little caterpillar on a tissue and placed it safely outside. May this be something to ponder – just how fragile and fleeting life is and that one should appreciate each and every moment! Thank you, little caterpillar, for having brought meaning to my day.

A MOTHER’S PAIN The tears ran unchecked down my cheeks as I read Nandia Neethling’s description of how lovingly she prepared her son, Dylan, for his cremation (YOU, 3 October). I know parents in mourning are inclined to bury their beloved children with a favourite toy, but Nandia took it one step further by rubbing his lifeless lips with lip balm, and even went as far as gelling his hair. I cannot imagine the agony she was going through as she touched her only child for the very last time. One can almost feel the love as she lovingly performed these last tasks for a child who never should’ve died, especially in such tragic circumstances. I don’t even want to mention the man who called himself a father – a coward who cold-bloodedly…

sparing the rod

The ruling outlawing corporal punishment (YOU, 10 October) deals with spanking but there are many other forms of violence that children are subjected to by their parents. These are emotional, psychological, financial and total parental neglect. In my many years of counselling children, I’ve come across several instances where parents bully their defenceless young children by screaming at them and instilling the worst form of fear into them for the most insignificant and bizarre reasons. Most children came to see me for symptoms such as bedwetting, nightmares, school refusal and a range of unexplainable symptoms, such as headaches, stomach cramps, anxiety and even depression. No amount of corporal punishment will resolve defiant behaviour if the underlying issues aren’t addressed. That doesn’t mean that children mustn’t be taught discipline. This can be done most effectively…
