My child has two Teachers; Discipline and Pain.

Proverbs 3:21
My child, hold on to wisdom and reason. Don’t let them out of your sight!

Discipline uses wisdom and reason to teach;
to guide;
to warn;
to love;
to renew;
to foresee;
to create knowledge;
to give instructions;
to draw boundaries and keep you safe;
to bring joy to the hearts of Papa and Mama.

Pain is the consequence of actions that comes from a heart that is turned away from Discipline.

It stings and
It creates tears
BUT sorrows will turn into joy when a Foolish heart becomes a Wise heart and a Wise heart becomes a Wiser heart by adding to its learning.

Proverbs 9:9
Instruct the wise and they will be wiser still;
Teach the righteous and they will add to their learning.

Little by little, one step at a time. A brick is built upon another to form a firm foundation.

It creates a platform for free exchanges of ideas, greater interactions, and improved understanding between my child and I.

It creates an opportunity to recap a heart-wrenching lesson we both have learnt and is now capable to laugh at it together.

Proverbs 23:15
My son, if your heart is wise,
My heart will also be glad.
