Discipline vs. punishment when parenting

This week our pastor, Brian Kelly, concluded his 2-part message on the top 10 things he's learned in 20 years of parenting.  It was a great time of unpacking the lessons God had taught him as he raised his 3 kids. In this message, he outlined his second set of "5 parenting tips."  They included:

1. CALL A TIMEOUT

2. DISCIPLINE WISELY

3. SAY I’M SORRY

4. PRIORITIZE YOUR PARENTING

5. REALIZE IT’S A SEASON.

Brian's second point talks about "disciplining wisely."  To discipline wisely means to be strategic on how you discipline.  Our best example of how to parent comes from God who reveals Himself as our Father!  How does he parent us...and how can we implement His parenting style into ours?

"What if we thought of discipline instead of punishment" when our children misbehave? What a great thought!
