The Importance of Parental
One of the most alarming
features of the present time, is
the neglect on the part of par­
ents to contiol and discipline
their children. “Children obey
your parents,” is now practically
changed to “parents obey your
children.” Those of us who were
brought up in a sterner age,
have smarting recollections of
the striking consequences which
followed a disagreement with our
parents, when our wills and in­
clinations clashed.
Possibly some were too severe
in their treatment, but the pre­
valent lawlessness among those
brought up without any discipline,
shows it was a fault on the right
side. That there is a universal
disregard of law amongst all
classes, is only too sadly appar­
ent. The number of criminals is
on the increase and necessarily
so, for unless a man is brought
up from a child to obey, he will
find it increasingly difficult as he
grows older. The thought of an­
archism is revolting, but parents
who do not teach their children
to obey in the home, are making
potential anarchists. At tem­
perance meetings “Where is My
Wandering Boy Tonight?” was
frequently sung with the tremolo
stop pulled out to the full. The
audience would lie moved to tears
and indignation roused against
the wicked saloon keeper. But
we confess our feelings were not
so affected, for we surmised if
the wandering boy had not been
allowed to roam the streets at
night when he was a child, and
if he did, had been severely
brought to task, he would not
have been a loafer in subsequent
Many a weak brother was made
so because he was not brought
up to endure hardness and dis­
cipline. “Train up a child in the
way he should go and w hen he
is old he will not depart from it,”
is a fundamentally sound maxim.
So to insure a law respecting
man, he must lie brought up a
law respecting child. To do so.

that he is not a law unto himself

for leniency on account of his
