Talk on disciplining children

I'm speaking next week to a group of moms about disciplining children. Here's a quick preview of what I think I'll talk about.

  1. The purpose of discipline (discipleship)
  2. Keys of God's discipline model (Grace and Truth)
  3. Tactical discipline
    • Plan toward a goal rather than react
    • Focus on purpose not facts
    • Teach love through obedience not because I say so
    • Demonstrate joy not emotionless responsibility
    • Guide to life-long meaning not just how to be a good kid
What do you think? Is it practical enough? Will it give young moms more than they already have?
