bringing up the son

लालयेत् पञ्चवर्षाणि दशवर्षाणि ताडयेत्।
प्राप्ते तु षोडशे वर्षे पुत्रं मित्रवदाचरेत्।।

lalayet panchvarshaani dasavarshaani thadayet praapthey thu shodhasey varshey puthram mithramivaacharet

ലാളയേത് പഞ്ചവര്ഷാണി ദശവര്ഷാണി താഡയേത്
പ്രാപ്തേ തു ഷോഡശേ വര്ഷേ പുത്റം മിത്റമിവാചരേത്

A sensible parent should bring up his son with lots of exhibition of affection till he attains the age of five, from five to fifteen it should be a period of strict discipline where the cane need not be spared, but ones the son reaches sixteen years he should be treated like a friend. (this should apply to girls also)
