The Blessings of Discipline in a Child’s Life

Hilary Stout of the New York Times has recently written a piece on parenting titled “For Some Parents, Shouting is the New Spanking.” Why has shouting at children become a common form of discipline for parents? When shouting becomes the norm, parents teach their children that frustration and anger is an appropriate response to disobedience. On today’s program, Dr. Mohler notes the biblical importance of disciplining children with love and firmness. In the Christian world, love and unconditional acceptance are shown to children through careful parental discipline.
