Child’s Rights and Discipline: The Lost Theory (2)

Opening Charge

‘Love must be the foundation of discipline for it to be in the best interest of the child. What is this love? Love is summed up in selfless service to fellow man, including the children under our care. The Holy Writ says, ‘the son, who the father loves, he chastises.’ Discipline therefore must be motivated by the love of the custodian of the child and nothing more. It means the custodians are seeking the good of the child.

Thank you for joining me today as I discuss the subject of Child’s Rights and Discipline: The Lost Theory. Let me begin today by shedding more light on the definition of discipline.

The truth of the matter is that this definition has become a necessity because parents and stakeholders in the life of the child do not discipline anymore as we have lost the meaning. I must begin today by sharing with you that the operating principle of all discipline is the best interest of the child. I have also found that it is impossible for us to do anything in the best interest of the child except we love the child.

Love must be the foundation of discipline for it to be in the best interest of the child. What is this love? Love is summed up in selfless service to fellow man, including the children under our care. The Holy Writ says, ‘the son, who the father loves, he chastises.’ Discipline therefore must be motivated by the love of the custodian of the child and nothing more. It means the custodians are seeking the good of the child.

In the foregoing light, discipline will mean to Determine to Intentionally and Skilfully  Create in the child, a sense of  Individuality, dignity of human person of  and Persuasions(values) through  Love Inner strength (character) Nimbleness and Encouragement. From the foregoing we will find that discipline is not strictly synonymous with canning. It has to do with providing leadership for the child first through our life style and instruction. It has been established that children do not do what we say, they do what we do.

Please note that if discipline is designed to bring out the best in the child and preserve his/her dignity of human person. If that is the case, it therefore means parents and custodians must avoid abuse in the course of discipline.

I will be here tomorrow drawing the lines between discipline and abuse. Sure you found the visit her today worth your time.  Thank you and stay INSPIRED.
