Family Culture with Beth Hoff

Jan 20, 2021

Wouldn’t it be great if we never had to punish our kids? One of the most frequent questions I’m asked by parents is how to effectively discipline their kids.


You don’t have to be a parent for very long to realize something: you can’t actually control your kids. No matter how intimidating or kind or threatening or strategic you are, you ultimately cannot 100% control your child. And honestly? One of the most freeing things you can do as a parent is to STOP. TRYING.


But what does that look like practically? And how is discipline any different or better than traditional punishment? That’s exactly what we’re going to be talking about on today’s episode.


Key Takeaways from Episode 30:

+ Punishment & Discipline are not the same

+ True Discipline equals Discipleship

+ Discipline seeks connection over control

+ Love is a more powerful motivator than fear

+ Discipline builds confidence, but punishment evokes shame

+ Discipline encourages a growth mindset
