The difference of DISCIPLINE from Punishment

“Many of us are confused on this point because we have heard punishment called discipline. We all know that discipline is a good thing– the bible clearly  points out that love and discipline are connected. Unfortunately, our so-called discipline looks and feels like punishment. It helps us to mask our fear and justify our need for control. There is no power given to the one receiving such disipline. The one administering the requires complete compliance from the one being disciplined, and therein lies the difference between discipline that is actually punishment and discipline through consequences. Consequences are different from discipline because power is given to the one who made the mess”.
