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.
