We talked back in November about our children’s “failure to launch”, and the role we as parents played in it.  With the recent news of the “Affluenza Teen” and his mother’s role in trying to shield him from justice for his actions, we need to take another look at the ramifications for NOT disciplining our kids, and what the Bible says about discipline in general.

Picking up where we left off yesterday, we dig into the scriptures on discipline and discuss the difference between shielding our kids from the dangers of this world and preventing them from experiencing the consequences of their choices and actions.  Are we ever to “soften the blow”—and what will our kids learn if we do?
