Are you afraid of the word discipline? It is a necessary, an important word in the teachings of the Church. And it is essential that good habits of discipline be established in the home.

DIRECTIONS

Discipline does not necessarily infer punishment and penance. Rather, it means the positive approach to any present problem or anticipated problem which threatens to disturb the order of your home or of your child's thinking.

It is well always to keep your goal in mind. The small, everyday actions are those which build character. If these are carefully dealt with, the big and important ones will take care of themselves.

Discipline must be maintained. Keep at this day by day. Let there be emphasis on the positive approach. If you assume that your child will be honest, obedient and kind, he will very likely acquire these virtues. If he comes to see and know the pattern of goodness in other members of the household, he will follow it.
