When Should You Start Disciplining Your Child?


All discipline for the moment seems not to be joyful, but sorrowful; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness.


—Hebrews 12:11 (NASB)


Children aren’t going to welcome being disciplined, but later they’ll welcome the good character traits that result.
