More on discipline

I was visiting with one of my daughters recently and she said something which I thought was really insightful.    She said, "Well-disciplined children rarely need disciplining."   That's a very accurate statement.   We often think of discipline negatively or erroneously compare it with punishment but discipline is something that we all need to develop.  The dictionary defines discipline as training.  There is nothing negative about that!  We do our children a disservice by not training them or teaching them how to act around other people and in public.   If we could only get it into their heads that when they behave well, they are happier, have more privileges, and have happier parents!  Sounds worth it to me!
