And Then Some News

Thursday’s essay is called, “Children must be taught discipline, but it is a slowly evolving process.” Whenever I think of discipline, it makes me think back to the way I was disciplined in the family in which I grew up. This essay brought back those memories in stark relief. It also discusses four universal truths regarding discipline.

Share your link. Have you written anything about discipline? Are you a person who has experienced discipline first hand and wants to share your experiences? Are you a parent who meted out (or did not!) discipline? Can you share some insights about any of your own (or others) experiences with giving, taking, or experiencing the results of discipline? How important is it? Why does it matter? What would you like to tell people about discipline? Share your link with us. We’ll post it and move traffic in your direction. And, a big “thank you,” in advance, from AndThenSomeWorks.com, for sharing your link.

Thursday's And Then Some Essay preview:
Children must be taught discipline, but it is a slowly evolving process
by Richard L. Weaver II


Having experienced a form of discipline in my own home, having raised four children myself (along with my wife, of course), and now watching my children discipline their own children, doesn’t make me an expert; however, there are four universal truths parents need to follow. First, parents must be consistent with the rules of behavior, or they will confuse their children. They need to clearly explain the preferred behavior so that children will understand precisely what they expect of them: set routines for bedtime, meals, and chores. Routines help children feel safe, because they know what parents expect.
