Gods Design in Discipline
  • Bring about change of Behavior (Pro 623, Pro
    1915, 18)
  • To Develop a Conscience (Pro 2313-14, 2 Cor
  • To Demonstrate Love Concern for the Child (Pro
    1324, Heb 128, Rev 319)
  • To Develop an Understanding of Wrong (Jam 516,
    1 Jn 19)

Bipolar or Spoiled
  • The symptoms, which are regarded as evidence of
    bipolar disorder, usually are what most people
    recognize as ordinary belligerence. Children who
    have anger outbursts, who refuse to go to bed,
    who are moody and self-centered under the current
    standard of care in child psychiatry are being
    diagnosed with bipolar disorder. To most rational
    human beings, these behaviors describe an
    ill-mannered, immature and poorly disciplined
    child. Nonetheless, the temper tantrums of
    belligerent children are increasingly being
    characterized by doctors as the mood swings of
    bipolar disorder.  
  • Instead of grooming, feeding and educating the
    next generation of Americans to be the fittest,
    brightest, most competent contributors on the
    planet, we have indulged, placated and spoiled
    our children into dysfunctional misfits. We are
    teaching our children to use a psychiatric
    diagnosis to excuse their antisocial behaviors.
    This will inevitably lead to a greater reliance
    on psychiatric medications, which unfortunately
    do not endow an individual with improved
    self-control or maturity.
  • Dr. Elizabeth J. Roberts, Child and Adolescent

Raising Your Children
  • Some Final Considerations

Children are more influenced by sermons you act
than by sermons you preach - David McKay
Live so that when your children think of fairness
and integrity, they think of you - H. Jackson
Brown, Jr.
Your children will become what you are so be
what you want them to be - David Bly
It is easier to build strong children than to
repair broken men - Fredrick Douglas
It is my view that our society can be no more
stable than the foundation of individual family
units upon which it rests Our government, our
institutions, our schools, our way of life are
dependent on healthy marriages and loyalty to the
vulnerable little children around our feet -
James Dobson
Don't worry that children never listen to you
worry that they are always watching you -
Robert Fulghum
  • He who loves his son will whip him often, so that
    he may rejoice at the way he turns out. He who
    disciplines his son will profit by him, and will
    boast of him among acquaintances. He who teaches
    his son will make his enemies envious, and will
    glory in him among his friends. When the father
    dies he will not seem to be dead, for he has left
    behind him one like himself, whom in his life he
    looked upon with joy and at death, without grief.
    He has left behind him an avenger against his
    enemies, and one to repay the kindness of his
    friends. Whoever spoils his son will bind up his
    wounds, and will suffer heartache at every cry.
    An unbroken horse turns out stubborn, and an
    unchecked son turns out headstrong. Pamper a
    child, and he will terrorize you play with him,
    and he will grieve you. Do not laugh with him,
    or you will have sorrow with him, and in the end
    you will gnash your teeth. Give him no freedom
    in his youth, and do not ignore his errors. Bow
    down his neck in his youth, and beat his sides
    while he is young, or else he will become
    stubborn and disobey you, and you will have
    sorrow of soul from him. Discipline your son and
    make his yoke heavy, so that you may not be
    offended by his shamelessness. Better off poor,
    healthy, and fit than rich and afflicted in body.
    Health and fitness are better than any gold, and
    a robust body than countless riches. There is no
    wealth better than health of body, and no
    gladness above joy of heart. Death is better
    than a life of misery, and eternal sleep than
    chronic sickness.

  • (Sir 30117). Nashville Thomas Nelson

Train up a child in the way that he should go,
and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
- King Solomon
