Discipline your children now so they can discipline themselves later.
What is discipline?
Carnal Desires & Self-Control
When you think about it, discipline can be boiled down to training that seeks a greater result for a person than the person left to his own carnal desires would otherwise seek for himself. This implies that our carnality isn’t all there is to our humanity.
Now I am definitely all for kids learning to make their own good choices. But when we routinely allow our kids to choose only what gratifies their carnal nature, we cheat them from the long-term benefits of being all they can be as human beings.
Yes, this may mean disappointing Junior once in a while; even ticking him off. But that’s ok if it’s for his ultimate good.
Discipline imposed on kids today will make self-discipline as an adult a much easier choice.
