Wow this is a crazy old thread
Anyway, whether or not GD means "no discipline" depends on how you define "discipline". We don't hit, yell, punish, time-out, shame, manipulate, have arbitrary rules or imposed consequences. If any of that is how one defines "discipline", then we would look like one of those families who has "no" discipline.
If you see discipline as an act of learning and modeling self-discipline -- including but not limited to: respectful exchanges, modeling of socially appropriate and respectful behavior, lots of safe learning opportunities, lots of opportunity to explore, creating a "yes" environment, honoring our boundaries and teaching dd how to honor her own, knowledge of and respect for age and developmentally appropriate behvavior, ongoing discussions where almost all needs and wants of all family members are considered and honored, discussing and modeling non-violent communication,displaying unconditional love regardless of behavior by putting the relationship first, trusting our child's abilities to know herself and so much more.... then yeah, we use a lot of discipline.
Discipline and punishment are interchangable words to many people, so to those people, our method of *discipline* probably looks like no discipline -- because to them, it isn't discipline unless someone is learning through a painful process.
We recognize and embrace the knowledge that learning and even modifying of behaviors (though the latter is not our goal, it is often a fringe benefit) can come about joyously, or at the very least, without painful or punitive measures.
So I guess to answer your question "Does GD mean no discipline??" I would say, depends on who is asking, who is answering, and how they both define *discipline* -- so it is no wonder that the replies vary so much.
