THE DISCIPLINE OF DISCIPLINE – It takes discipline to discipline. Trace Embry explains today on License to Parent.
Has it ever occurred to us, as parents, that it actually takes self-discipline on our part to discipline our children? As parents, do we realize that if we don’t discipline ourselves to discipline our children that God might discipline us? And it just might come by way of a rebellious child and all the pain and life lessons that come with it. Health clubs are considered good things; yet, they often display signs that read, “No pain, no gain.” And what about the saying, “This is going to hurt me more than it’s going to hurt you?” How can the executor of pain hurt more than the recipient? It’s because of the self-discipline it takes to exercise discipline – especially from a parent to a child! Parents, we need to discipline ourselves to discipline our children whenever the time is appropriate.
