In today’s society we are so afraid to correct and discipline our children out of fear that we may break them down. Proverbs 13:24 refutes this thought: He who spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is careful to discipline him. This verse doesn’t imply we should beat our children, instead it says we should not be afraid to correct them. They are not as fragile as we think and disciplining children creates disciplined adults who are not intimidated by failure.
