It sounds like the friend was punished. It seems to me discipline is used for training purposes and there is some degree of freedom whereas punishment removes freedom?
Yes I think, having a choice/freedom within the scenario can help to distinguish between the understanding of discipline and punishment.

Other than personal discipline it sounds like punishment is used when discipline does not work?
Tim, I think that some form of influence is used to keep the discipline. It certainly can include some form of punishment,but it could also include some form of positive reinforcement. imo
