What are the most fundamental differences seperating discipline from punishment?
Other than that the two have little to do with one another, take a shot and try to define their seperation.
In my humble opinion:
Discipline is a reasonable, response to an incident that is meant to help the person being disciplined understand what went wrong with possible guidance on ways to avoid this situation in the future.
Punishment, however, is usually only meant to change behaviour through the infliction of some sort of pain (mental, physical, emotional) in an effort to stop someone from repeating a behaviour. There is no attempt to assist the person in any way.
