Looking For a Secular Florida Umbrella School?

Friday, March 24, 2006


Etymology: Middle English, from Old French & Latin; Old French, from Latin disciplina teaching, learning, from discipulus pupil
2 obsolete : INSTRUCTION
3 : a field of study
4 : training that corrects, molds, or perfects the mental faculties or moral character
5 a : control gained by enforcing obedience or order b : orderly or prescribed conduct or pattern of behavior c : SELF-CONTROL
6 : a rule or system of rules governing conduct or activity

There's a difference between discipline and child abuse. The Pearls' version of training brings to mind someone tied to the tracks and being crushed by a locomotive.

I prefer not to be associated with anyone supporting or defending that behavior, so as soon as I can remember my damn log-in information I'm shutting down my other (inactive anyway, because I hardly have time for one) homeschoolblogger.com site.

As far as definition 6, "a rule or system of rules governing conduct or activity" goes, what's wrong with "Do Unto Others..."?
