discrete normal subgroup of a connected group

could any one give me hint for this one?

$G$ be a connected group, and let $H$ be a discrete normal subgroup of $G$, then we need to show $H$ is contained in the center of $G$

first of all, I have no clear idea what is meant by discrete subgroup and its any special properties?
