day no. 14,018: ongoing discipline and dialogue

Proverbs 29:15
The rod and reproof give wisdom,
but a child left to himself brings shame to his mother.
Consequences and conversations guide small minds to big truths.


  1. Timeout is consequence without conversation; some of these current parenting fads are just about conversations without consequences. I think the Bible hits it on the head (shocker!)- both, together, are the best way to true heart change in a child.

  2. consequence without conversation is cruel.
    conversation without consequences is coddling.

    consequence with conversation is Christian.
