Discipline is a wronged word. Discipline is so much more than a telling off. Discipline causes me to drive correctly on the road – maybe not all the time but generally I stay within the speed limit and I stop at red lights. Discipline is helping me to limit my eating this week. I feel hungry all the time but I am hoping by the end of the week I will be 6kg lighter.
That is why I ask my girls to do 2 things around the house. Wash up after tea and more recently tidy your bedroom before you go to sleep.
Simple discipline and hopefully they will find it a useful lesson in life.
