What “good discipline” looks like

Posted: 05/18/2010 in Parenting, Resources

In reading Gospel-centered families by Tim Chester and Ed Moll published by The Good Book Company (www.thegoodbook.com), I came across this and had to share it.

Good Discipline is:
1. Calm – The focus of discipline is the child’s heart rather than your emotional state.
2. Clear – Make commands clear.
3. Consistent
– Set consistent boundaries.
– Always follow through on warnings
– Be consistent between parents
4. Concentrated on the heart – The most important thing about good discipline is that it’s concentrated on the heart.
