Discipline or Disgrace?

To discipline and reprimand a child produces wisdom, but a mother is disgraced by an undisciplined child (Proverbs 29:15, New Living Translation).

A mother is disgraced by an undisciplined child.

A child left to himself, without rules or supervision, may respond by acting out for attention or may not learn respect for the rules of society and of God that he will run into someday. The result is shame and disgrace, not only for the parents, but for the child.
