I believe that discipline is very important for the young child and that the absence of it at that crucial age may have a very bad effect on psychical stability in later years. The human emotional complex needs to be confronted even at three years of age with a life that has a definite form and insistent pattern. One needs something to bite on that is real. In the nature of things a young child's life can have no natural MORALS AND MANNERS 45 pattern forced on it by the structure of what he confronts.
