Proverbs 29:15

The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame.

In this proverb, the “rod” represents corporal punishment, while “reproof” represents verbal correction. These two forms of parental discipline imparts wisdom and does not warp the child’s psyche or emotional growth but gives them security and shows that they are loved.
