Many Christians have known for a long time that discipline of children is a problem in our American culture—and now some Australian education experts are beginning to agree! A recent article from an Australian news source is titled “Education experts claim discipline system in state schools is ‘new-age and politically correct.’”1 In it, education experts argued that the disciplinary measures in Australian schools are not working.
Kevin Donnelly, director of the Education Standards Institute, not only identified a problem with the school system, but also suggested that parents “needed to play a bigger role in teaching their children respect for authority.”
Surprisingly, he’s right! Parents in American culture, like in Australia, do not discipline children God’s way. They are not teaching their children respect for authority, and that has left us with many problems. Just as the culture has abandoned the foundation of God’s Word for its worldview regarding such issues as marriage and the sanctity of life, so also it has abandoned the authority of Scripture in discipline of children.
