Parents have the responsibility to correct and discipline
their children. In order for correction to be effective, there
must be a proper relationship already existing between
parents and children. Proper relationships are developed
when parents show true concern and genuine interest in
anger. Parents must establish standards of behavior for
their children, and character must be the basis of
correction. The purpose of correction is to benefit the
child and to restore the parent/child relationship that has
been damaged through disobedience.
Character-based correction teaches children that good
character wins their parent's approval.
