The purpose of discipline is to show love, avert disaster and help children to be responsible. Disciplining children must be swift and restrained, and not overdone. It is worthy of note that parents are God’s representative on earth so it is their responsibility to teach children to be hardworking, and respectful.
Parent’s have the responsibility to care for children, provide for their physical, mental and spiritual needs. It is important to encourage and guide children, all the money parents look for will not be enough to change children if they go wrong. We should discipline children to show love, teach them to work hard when no one is watching, build their lives on the word of God and reward them for their good works.
