Growing Kids God's Way: Discipline with Correction

This week we will learn about discipline with correction.

There is a difference between childishness and foolishness.

Think about what kind of behavior your child is exhibiting- accidental or intentional; a mistake or malicious intent?  This determines the type of correction.

With childishness, you will be admonishing which is more like teaching.

With foolishness, you need to correct this defiant behavior with verbal admonishment, action and consequential punishment.

This chapter contains far too many ideas and examples so I would suggest that you get this book or take this class.  Again, I'm just whetting your appetite with these short posts.

Next time: Consequences and Punishment.
