Ask @dmrd6:

What kind of future would individuals that were overly-disciplined as children face? In what ways would they have been overly-disciplined for it to let their future take this path?

Overly-disciplining children could appropriately prepare them for the harshness of the real world. It could also turn them into a loyal follower who never questions authoritative figures. Or it could have the opposite effect: pushing them to their breaking point and leaving them angrily frustrated wanting to disobey those who hold power over them. But I'm no psychologist. As for the forms of discipline, I suppose giving them little to no freedom and over-the-top punishments at the first sign of defiance by waterboarding them at the age of 4 would count.
