Discipline is not a euphemism for punishment

Discipline is the control that comes from parental guidance and leadership that allows the child to develop optimal self-control.  Authoritarian parenting often results in either rebellion or lack of self-confidence.  Passive parenting often results in children who lack internal structure.  Authoritative parenting provides guidelines and skills for life and usually produces the best results for most children.

Key idea: The goal of parental discipline is to help the child develop self-discipline.
