I ran across this quite by accident looking for a picture of 'The Cleavers', and thought it was worth sharing. This article can be found at http://www.bible.ca/marriage/proverbs-for-home-family.htm

Don't we wish we all could have been like 'The Cleavers'.....I know I do!

5. "and you have forgotten the exhortation which is addressed to you as sons, "My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord, Nor faint when you are reproved by Him; For those whom the Lord loves He disciplines, And He scourges every son whom He receives." It is for discipline that you endure; God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom his father does not discipline? But if you are without discipline, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate children and not sons. Furthermore, we had earthly fathers to discipline us, and we respected them; shall we not much rather be subject to the Father of spirits, and live? For they disciplined us for a short time as seemed best to them, but He disciplines us for our good, so that we may share His holiness. All discipline for the moment seems not to be joyful, but sorrowful; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness. Therefore, strengthen the hands that are weak and the knees that are feeble, and make straight paths for your feet, so that the limb which is lame may not be put out of joint, but rather be healed. " Hebrews 12:5-13

10. "Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. " Ephesians 6:4
11. "Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child; The rod of discipline will remove it far from him. " Proverbs 22:15
12. "For whom the Lord loves He reproves, Even as a father corrects the son in whom he delights. " Proverbs 3:12
