A good friend left some great parenting advice in the comment section of another's blog. Speaking about discipline he quoted an unknown source who said that our goal as parents should be that our children "fall from a low height rather than a high height." This means we should not shy away from causing our kids momentary discomfort now if we desire them to be happy, productive, individuals later. The pain and consequences of a person's wrong choices seem to increase proportionately to the increase in their age. That is why it is so crucial to sinful nip behavior in the butt now. Proverbs 22:6.
