"Many parents have a struggle between their hopes for their children's behavior and what the children actually do. This is more easily solved than the parents think. There are three key elements to doing this.
(1) The authority of the parent enables the parent to act. Without this understanding, the parent will feel reluctant to make their child obey their wishes. They might try different means of persuasion, but they will feel powerless to do anything.
(2) Discipline with its accompanying chastisement makes sure the parents' desire for their children comes to fruition.
(3) The setting, communication and implementation of boundaries for the children. In other words, what are we going to tell our children to do and how do we get them to do these things?"Biblical Foundations For Freedom
