Is Discipline Welcome?

A correspondent writes: "I have been studying Science half of my human existence—the second half. In the first half I was brought up without any discipline to speak of. Even now, with my study of Christian Science, I still have trouble trying to control myself. As I see it, this should have been established before I even entered kindergarten."

The English word "discipline" stems from the Latin discere, meaning "to learn." A disciple, therefore, is a learner; and one dictionary definition of discipline is "a course of exercise and practise in order to bring and keep under control, and to qualify for harmonious and effective action."
