I am thankful for my nephew who is beginning to see that the only real discipline is self discipline. He’s getting tired of folks “forcing” him to do things he knows he should be doing on his own. He asked me if I could put the timer settings back on the router so he couldn’t access the net past his curfew. Because the only clock/timer he’s used recently that consistently wakes him in the morning is on his Ipod. Which usually gets locked up so he can’t break his e-curfew.
Still a bit of growing to do in the self discipline department, but definitely signs that the concept is sinking in. And he’s at least trying to get serious about getting up in a timely fashion. Gotta like that too.
