Discipline and Punishment – Is there a difference?

What is the difference between discipline and punishment?  Some people believe there is no difference between the two.  They believe they are one in the same.  What do you believe is the difference between discipline and punishment?  Does punishment (hitting, spanking, yelling, name-calling) really work in correcting a child’s behavior?  How do you as a parenting grandparent handle discipline and punishment?
