Prov. 22:15 "Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child, but the rod of discipline will drive it far from him."
Prov. 23:13-14 "Do not withhold discipline from a child; if you punish him with the rod, he will not die. 14 Punish him with the rod and save his soul from death."
Prov. 29:15 "The rod of correction imparts wisdom, but a child left to himself disgraces his mother."
I don't spank because I want to. I spank because God says it works. I know the more consistent I am with delivering appropriate discipline at the appropriate time the more peaceful my home will be.
