What is discipline? It is absolute freedom to do what a person wants? Is freedom regardless of consequences? Does it mean corrective action after a problem occurs or a wrong is done? Is it imposition? Is it abuse? Does it take away freedom? The answer is none of the above. Discipline does not mean that a person takes a belt and beats up kids. That is madness. Discipline is loving firmness. It is direction. It is prevention before a problem arises. It is harnessing and channeling energy for great performance. Discipline is not something you do to but you do for those you care about. Discipline is an act of love. Sometimes you have to be unkind to be kind. Not all medicine is sweet not all surgery is painless, but we have to take it. We need to learn from nature. We are all familiar with that big animal, the giraffe. A mama giraffe gives birth to a baby giraffe standing .All of a sudden the baby falls on the hard surface from the cushion of mama's womb and sits on the ground. The first thing mama does it to get behind the baby and give him a hard kick. The baby gets up but his legs are weak and wobbly and the baby falls down .Mama goes behind again and gives him one more kick .The baby gets up but sits down again .Mama keeps kicking till the baby gets on his feet and starts moving. Why? Because mama knows that the only chance of survival for that baby in the jungle is to get on his feet. Otherwise it will be eaten up by wildcats and become dead meat. Children bought up in a loving, disciplined environment end up respecting their parents more and become law abiding citizens. The reverse is just as true .Good parents are not afraid of momentary dislikes by children to enforce the subject. Allowing a child to eat a box of chocolates could lead to sickness. At the same time ,the discipline of eating one or two pieces a day can be enjoyable experience for a long time .Our instincts make us do whatever we want regardless of the consequences. Freedom is not procured by full enjoyment of what is desired but controlling the desire.
