Proverbs 29

"When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice;
when the wicked rule, the people groan.

A man who loves wisdom brings joy to his father,
but a companion of prostitutes squanders his wealth.

A fool gives full vent to his anger,
but a wise man keeps himself under control.

The rod of correction imparts wisdom,
but a child left to himself disgraces his mother.

Discipline your son, and he will give you peace;
he will bring delight to your soul."

children + discipline = joy & delight
Parents of young children are often weary of disciplining them. They feel like all they do is nag, scold or punish. When you are tempted to give up and let your children do what they want, or when you wonder if you've ruined every chance of a loving relationship with them, remember -kind, firm, consistent discipline helps them learn and learning makes them wise. Loving discipline will ultimately teach them to discipline themselves. It is as simple as right or wrong.
