You have your two kid's in the car. They are arguing and making a mess in the back seat.
Suddenly, you cut someone off in traffic. They are ANGRY. They shout insults and follow you into a parking lot.
They get out enraged and have nothing but violence on their mind. You immediately attempt to de-escalate the situation, but there is no hope. They are twice your size and they do not care about your kid's being in the car.
What do you do? How would you make out?
In this moment, your children are either going to be enlightened with trust, confidence, and pride for their dad.
OR...For the rest of their life, they will live with a subconscious fear of the unknown and will not look at you the same. If you think that isn't true, you are mistaken, I have seen it many times over the years and have had countless student's sign up because of similar situations.
The fear & consequence of violence
This fear is present in all of us. Every action that you make has a primitive element hidden within it. The threat of physical violence is the ultimate consequence to any action you make.
*By the way, having a gun will help you minimally. What if some big DRUNK football player walks up to you and slaps you in front of your wife. Will shots be fired?*
This threat is what ALLOWS someone to speak their mind or PREVENTS them from speaking their mind.
Lead by example
My father always had a quick switch. He wasn't the most level-headed individual. I remember a time as a child when a parent shouted an extremely disrespectful insult toward me during a children's basketball game.
I saw my father walk up to the person, the person stood up to scare my father and suddenly pushed my dad. I was TERRIFIED! Within two seconds, my father had the other parents shirt pulled over his head and was blasting him with "Uppercuts".
As people jumped in to break it apart, the other guy fixed his clothing and wiped his bloody lip and nose. He walked out of the gymnasium, embarrassed, and came back the next day with a gift for me and an apology letter for my dad.
Watching my father stand up for me and stand up for himself, made me feel a sense of pride that was indescribable. He explained to me after that you "have to stand up for yourself and never back down." He also reminded me that he did not want to fight, but felt threatened and had to defend himself.
I felt protected as a child and felt invincible walking around with my father. Of course we weren't invincible, but my confidence and belief system came from the example set forth. My father had no formal training and was a unique exception. He grew up in poverty and was abandoned, and left without parents. He had to fight for clean bed sheets while living in an orphanage. This isn't the case for most.
