A diligent mother instructing her willful daughter.

It is enough to know that He wishes for her to be here, and that she can obey.
Perhaps it’s silly, but no matter the task, not matter how trivial it may seem, she is always so happy when He tells her to do something that she knows she can do.
When she knows that she can carry out His command, that she can make Him happy, that is where she finally finds peace.

A girl trying to avoid discipline is a sign of a corrupted soul, and should be whipped until the corruption has been driven away. A good wife/daughter would never offer resistance to discipline coming from a loving husband/father. And trust that he only has her best interests in mind.
