Default Re: Discipline can "fix" a problem

ITA that discipline is not necessarily to entirely subvert a behavior, but rather to disciple the child in 'appropriate' behavior with the goal being a Disciplined Adult.

Many times the things we associate with GBD (food, structure, sleep) are just about setting the child up to have the best chances at success at anything they do. It's not to change the child or cure them of an undesirable behavior, but to give them the best opportunity to reach their own potential.

Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take a boat in the air that you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turn of the world. Love keeps her in the air when she ought to fall down. Tells you she's hurting before she keens. Makes her a home.
