Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child; the rod of correction will drive it far from him.
Correct your son, and he will give you rest; yes, he will give delight to your soul.
Don’t fail to discipline your children. The rod of punishment won’t kill them. Physical discipline may well save them from death. (NLT)
Chasten your son while there is hope, and do not set your heart on his destruction.
He who spares his rod hates his son, but he who loves him disciplines him promptly.
The rod and rebuke give wisdom, but a child left to himself brings shame to his mother.
Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint; but happy is he who keeps the law.
You shall teach them to your children, speaking of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.
Hear, my children, the instruction of a father, and give attention to know understanding; for I give you good doctrine: do not forsake my law. When I was my father’s son, tender and the only one in the sight of my mother, He also taught me, and said to me: “Let your heart retain my words; keep my commands, and live.
My son, do not forget my law, but let your heart keep my commands; For length of days and long life and peace they will add to you.
