I agree. Childrn need a firm hand and those who let them run wild are not doing them a favour, but setting them up for grief and heartache in life. My children are disciplined and they are healthy and happy and life correct and proper lives. I know they will make me proud of them because they have been raised properly.

discipline - Discipline without whips and ties.
In any kind of relationship, Love is the key to it.

sorry i disagree. in these days, 'he who spares the rod and just reasons with the child makes the son love him'. --and the love is mutual. discipline can be inculcated in a kind but firm way. Throw away the rod please!

Loving is Not Enough - We need to teach our children and there are many books that give you tools if you were taught none by your parents.
Sparing the rod, which means lacking in any form of discipline does equate with selfishness on the parents part. Rules are there for all of us and the good parent instills the knowledge of right and wrong and that takes different forms for different children.

It's true, children need guidance through disciplines.
