What I've Learned about Discipline

My daughters are now 23 and 29 years old. Hard to imagine! But, one of my lessons in these 30 years of mothering includes discipline.

I learned that to express my love was through confronting and correcting my daughters' inappropriate behaviors.

When I understood that discipline was really about teaching, it dawned on me that anyone could discipline my kid without loving her, but I could not fully and maturely love her without taking the time to consistently, patiently discipline.

I hope that's one of your lessons too.
