So here's a question for all the adults on this line of discussion:
It's Monday morning, and you have an interview at an organization that you are very excited about. You have prepared for this interview and you eagerly await the big meeting with the director. The director enters the interview room, sits down and asks for a copy of your resume. Oh my God --- it's the one thing you have overlooked throughout this whole process. Who could have known this Director would have asked for a copy of your resume.
You apologize for not bringing an extra copy of your resume, and the director stands up, approaches you, and smacks you across the face for being naughty in not bringing your resume.
At first you are shocked, and then you feel you 'deserve the punishment' for being so 'stupid' for forgetting something as basic as your resume.
Now let's pause a moment. Let's say you are a child. And let's say as a child you made a mistake, or overlooked something that your parents wanted from you. How did that smack across the face feel?
Did that smack make you a better person? Did that smack make you smarter? more effective? more responsible?
Did that smack make you feel more respectful to the role of authority?
What is the purpose of the smack and could the message have been delivered in a more respectful, thoughtful way?
I'm not pretending to know the answers to these questions....but someone needs to ask the questions here........
