Child Should be Given
Fair Chance for
Life Useful Existence
By SIR OLIVER LODGE
HE ultimate object of religious training must be to encourage
such ideas and habits as shall result in a happy childhood
and a sound and usefil life. We should not subordinate thel
life of the child too entirely into the life of the adult. It is
a period of preparation, truly, but it is something more than'
that. It is a life period of value in itself. It is a time of con
siderable subjective length, and it should be allowed due!
weight and permanence in the scheme of existence. At the'
same time a respect for grown-up people is a natural, child
like instinct which ought not lightly to be destroyed.
The first real gods of a child are his parents, however ungodlike they
may be. And hence arises that feeling of security and nearness of protec-.
tion and law which is one of the luxuries of childhood, and, I may add,
one of the responsibilities of parenthood.
In discussing religious teaching we are considering what* we term
their souls; and however many clouds of glory the average poor child 1
may be trailing when he arrives in this poor planet he has not to wait
long before every trace is completely lost and the vision splendid fades
into the light of common day at an early stage, I fear, in the infancy of
the street urchin.
It is a lamentable result of town life and the struggle for existence
in our complex civilization. I am not sure that it is not a wicked and i
blasphemous condition of things.
That nation or colony which could insure that its children should
pend their short and vital- early years among healthy, happy surround
rings suited to their time of life and state of development, and leading
to a good, robust, serviceable manhood and womanhood-that nation:
1would in a few generations stand out from amongst the rest of the world
as something almost superhuman. t
The idea seems remote, the path towards its attainment too difficult;
yes, but that is partly because too few realize it as an ideal, too few are
Aware of any such problems before them. They have no such aim, and
ithout proper aim we are not likely to hit the mark.
I do not believe that the problem is insoluble. I believe that some.
ay it will be solved. Human life is not allvays going to be the failure
jiat it is at present. Crime and vice and besotted stupidity are not,
always going to have it their own way.
We owe it to the children to give them a fair and decent chance of
understanding the world and of living in it with pleasure and human r
People will say that it would cost too much.
Nothing of the kind can cost too much. What is the necessity ofi
life? What is this planet for? Consider those questions and then con
sider whether as yet we have learned or even effectively tried to answer'
them in any reasonable manner: whether we are not hopelessly befogged
by custom and buried beneath the relics of barbarous times.
The fi ures would be comparatively few. But so long as neglected,
weedy wastes are allowed, the most cultivated plots are
unsafe and all the neighboring territory is infected to
a lamentable extend. The whole world is welded to-'
gether in this way, so that new physical and moral dis
'~/ eases, bred in some tropical swamp or eastern city,
3can at times decimate the healthiest civilization.
- No fraction of the world or of the individual can
be thoroughly healthy and happy while any member
of it is degraded and wretched.
