Such a simple sentence, yet so profound, it has permanently changed me.
Punishment is retaliation.
Discipline is a choice from within, rooted in integrity, awareness, and purpose.
Management of self and one’s emotions is necessary to provide a stable, reliable, harmonic environment for relationship and the beneficial growth of children’s minds.
Sometimes we just need to look at our world through their viewing portal… What a generation of empathic, aware, and respected humans we could grow.
I will begin a series on the value of guidance vs consequence delivering/punishing (what our society so often labels, “discipline), including punishment vs simple result over the coming weeks. I have not had the ability to devote the amount of time and focus here that I have hoped this past year, but with a bit of luck, our conversations will inspire and much thought will follow.
Welcoming a year of blessing, benefit, and reverence.
