Updated: Jun 10, 2019
Tuesday Tip: The word "discipline" is from the Latin word disciplina meaning "instruction and training". It's derived from the root word discere -- "to learn." Discipline is to study, learn, train, and apply a system of standards. Discipline is not rules, regulations, or punishment. -Merriam-Websters Dictionary
For some, the word discipline can have a negative connotation; often times when people hear the word they associate it with punishment. But if you look at the true meaning of discipline, to learn, or, to train, we really want to be doing that all the time with our children. Take the time to teach the children.
