7 But anyone who spoils his son will have to bandage his wounds.[a] His heart will stop every time he hears a shout.8 An untamed horse is going to be stubborn, and an undisciplined son is no different.9 If you pamper your child and play with him, he will be a disappointment and a source of grief.10 Laugh with him now, and one day you will have to cry over him, grinding your teeth in regret.11 Don't give him freedom while he is young, and don't overlook what he does wrong.12 Whip him while he is still a child, and make him respect your authority. If you don't, he will be stubborn and disobedient and cause you nothing but sorrow.13 So discipline your son and give him work to do, or else he will be an embarrassment to you.
