Mother*' and Teachers'
The following is a paper read at
the Mother»*’ and Teacher»' meet
ing held on Friday aftcrncon, Dec.
In a lecture quito recently de
livered in one of our well-known
cities by a scholarly man and a man
of rocognizod authority upon the
subject of child-training, the speak
er, after stating that ho considered
his subject “ The Child," the most
important one in the world, said he
if children were
trained aright anl could be made
to think aright in early youth, all
other problems would solve them
“ Responsibility,” he said,
“ in its higher or sublime sense, is
the keynote to the whole problem,
the two words, parents and respons-
iblity, being identical.” It seems to
me that the teacher of tho child also
shares largely in this responsibility.
What an important work is that

It is on ly of late years and since
tho subject of “ Child Psychology”
has received so much attention and
study all over tho world, that the
vory best teaching material is de
manded for theso grades, tho old
notion “ that almost anyouo can
teach in a primary school” no longer
finding favor with thinking people.
The primary teacher has been
likened to a “ Man with a Hoe”

A word in regard to tbh teaching
o f the older pupils, those who are
actual students! Though less im
pressionable than those of tenderer
age, they are still more or less
susceptible to influences of all kinds
and lack judgment necossary to
establish good standards for them
selves. More is naturally expected
of them and it is difficult always to
bear in mind that it is the “ seod-
time rather than the harvest" with
These pupils, young and
naturally thoughtless, cannot per
ceive, as do we of riper age and
experience, how n life of study or
ono spent in the atmosphere of a
school-room, often tends to make
one impractical or bookish, even
irritable and curt in manner. It is
so difficult for the young to judge
except by the young external.
