Discipline is one of man’s vital arms. There are so many challenges in life that one must undergo. And to survive all these challenges, one must be properly trained and willing to endure them.

We now live in a very complex society. Teen pregnancies, violence, suicides are increasing. Our society has lost touch with what children need to mold character and competence.

Today’s youth need something. And what is it? They constantly need loving training that connects the heart and mind. Different persons need different kinds of discipline. When motivaed by love, discipline often can be conveyed by reasoning.

Teaching children a sense of order and respect is one great challenge for parents today. Boundaries must be set around personal properties and preferences to imply that it is wrong to love violence or harm one another.
