He who hath not Discipline is like a race-horse without a rider.
JOHN BALLOU NEWBROUGH, Oahspe
Discipline is necessary and good. You can't raise successful children without it, but discipline should not repress or tyrannize. Discipline should lead to powerful habits of direction, work, and good judgment. Good discipline produces strength, not weakness; creativity, not banality; responsibility, not self-indulgence.
ZIG ZIGLAR, Raising Positive Kids in a Negative World
