Strict and regular mental or moral training
In this time of crime, hatred, rape, violence, drugs, child abuse and related social problems, we believe the principles of love and discipline is very important. We must accept responsibility for a problem before we can solve it. We also believe in the words of the great author M. Scott Peck, M.D. as quoted in his book called THE ROAD LESS TRAVELED:
"Life is a series of problems. Do we want to moan about them or solve them? Do we want to teach our children to solve them?
Discipline is the basic set of tools we require to solve life's problems. Without discipline we can solve nothing. With only some discipline we can solve only some problems. WITH TOTAL DISCIPLINE WE CAN SOLVE ALL PROBLEMS."
In the inner-cities and other communities across this country, you will find many juveniles and families behaving in a non-disciplinary manner. Many of us have observed people who have suffered educationally, religiously and economically because they simply do not understand the dynamics and importance of discipline and the development of self-discipline.
In many inner-cities of America, statistics say that 60% to 85% of the families are headed by single women. Many women recognize the lack of self-discipline in men. Some may have problems identifying the causes of such behavior. Others identify the causes and proceed with solutions. We concentrate on action and the implementation of a proven formula, which has been successful in our programs at the Unity Community Center.
THE DISCIPLINED MIND- Discipline will enhance your listening power. If you can listen, you can learn. This the true essence of achieving academic excellence.
