|Discipline leads to harvest of righteousness|
|"No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it."
— Bible, Hebrews 12:11
Disciplining means prohibition, punishment, restricting undesirable behavior. When disciplining an errant child, directives evoke negative experience as a result of child's aberrant behavior that can thus be slackened, restricted or completely removed.
The sole loving attitude and positive stimulus are not sufficient. A child that is guided and disciplined in an adequate way, gradually learns to discern socially acceptable and unacceptable forms of satisfying its needs.
