Erica Campbell recalls hanging out at her grandma’s house as kid with all of her siblings. If any of the kids acted up, Erica recalls, their grandma wouldn’t be mean or yell at them, she would pray at them. In this way she would reprimand them in love, as opposed to being antagonistic or spiteful. Erica says that because her grandma used this method, the child who had done wrong automatically felt bad for hurting grandma.
