The word “discipline” has fallen on hard times, especially as it relates to parenting.Some experts say, “How dare you discipline your kids. Let them discover themselves without putting restraints on their behavior.”
Imagine a coach saying, “I believe every athlete will eventually become an Olympian. Don’t worry about hard work and sweat in the gym. Do not impose curfews on the athlete’s time and sleep habits. Physical discipline only stifles an athlete’s ability to become his or her best self.” Are you kidding? That coach would not send many athletes to the Olympics.
An undisciplined life is an accident waiting to happen. That is why parents must lovingly correct their children and create reasonable boundaries for them.
