Establishing True Discipline

To deal with children we must understand them. If we are entrusted with the care of children, questions of discipline constantly arise which call for intelligent and adequate answers. Christian Science provides rewarding solutions to such problems, and they can be of inestimable value to all who have the joy of showing children how to live constructive and happy lives.

There is a widespread belief that the children of today are undisciplined, unruly, difficult to control, and even in some cases delinquent. Christian Science counteracts this false concept by showing that man is made in the image and likeness of God, as the Scriptures declare in the first chapter of Genesis, and that whatever may be a person's human age, parentage, background, or environment, he is in reality God's perfect child, His expression. He is governed and controlled by divine Principle and directed by infinite Mind; he reflects harmony and goodness and nothing else. Mrs. Eddy writes in "Unity of Good" (p. 23), "The divine children are born of law and order, and Truth knows only such."
