What was the most effective discipline you have experienced?


Now his father, King David, had never disciplined him at any time, even by asking, "What are you going?" 1 Kings 1:6 NLT

Suppose you get home from grocery shopping and discover your six-year-old is eating candy you didn't buy. It might be tempting to just scold him, send him to his room, and let it go at that. After all, it's only worth a dollar, and you're tired. But you'd miss an opportunity to turn this "miss" into a second chance.
It would be better to take away any uneaten candy, put your little shoplifter back in the car, drive to the grocery store, hunt up the manager, and tell your to apologize. Pay for the candy and deduct it from the 's allowance. Then, if the culprit is truly sorry, be sure to express your forgiveness–and God's forgiveness, too.
You've just boxed out the opposition and put your in position to rightly rebound. Because there will come another time in that grocery store or when he's passing a coveted pair of Nikes or–who knows?

The Bible tells us that parents have the primary responsibility for the spiritual development of our . And nowhere is the job given only to mothers and grandmothers. As Moses told the people of Israel, "Repeat [the command of God] again and again to your " (Deut. 6). Why not begin today?

May the Lord bless you and keep you

I have done that very same thing with one or more of my 4 kids.
You ask what was the most effective discipline I ever received?
My answer is daddy's belt or the threat of such object.

Lord, keep one hand on my shoulder and one hand over my mouth!
