Because of the way discipline is typically taught, there’s not a lot of nuance. Yesterday’s message was to expand your understanding of those nuances in discipline. Flexibility was the focus. Now let’s look at the degrees of discipline.
One of the rigid tendencies with the common view of discipline is to see it as a yes or no quality. You have discipline or you don’t. You were disciplined or you weren’t.
I believe this type of thinking does more harm than good because it trends toward catching people doing something wrong and punishment. That turns people off from discipline. No surprise.
