Excerpt from Child Culture in the Home: A Book for Mothers
The world is a vast school which the child enters at birth, and from which he is only re leased by death. Education is the most impor tant motive in that school, and he who is not advancing is retrograding. Education is the Hebe who hands man the elixir of the gods wisdom and power. The great problem is, what are the best means of distilling this much sought draught? Old methods are being re vised and better ones evolved to meet the broader life, and this generation has shown it self most receptive to innovations engendered by new conditions. In all educational depart ments there has been more progress in method, and a better application of new methods, than in the home, the place of all where the inﬂuence is the greatest and most enduring.
