not get down low enough to believe In them, and
the result Is that Ike child Is treated in a wrong

law of growth and appeal hour by hour, day by
day. as the occasion arises, to the child s own ex

meaning of such words. This is working from th»

fusing, bewildering process quite contrary to his

for such arbitrary outside treatment leaves hist

pr^at. But the checking of one's self in using the
well won, #iLpression is of practical use i;i msik
inc one pause to consider, en D fc r i sseoad or
two, the child's stage of development and his
standpoint of ignorance ani limitation. Let us not
ceil an tr.fant "naughty* except on the most rare
end extreme occasions, When perhaps pa«?ion and
temper have laid their erne] chains on him and a
rousing word will heir to ror.trol.""
One of the greatest niist.-ike? m the ethical train-
Ing of children Lady Is«r*l considers to be an at
tempt to teach truthfulness at too early an aze.
Yet how many Infants have been whipped for
lying, she sa\s. many old biographies will show.
In order to teach truth a hammer Is taker!, ai.d.
figuratively speaking, truth is knocked In. As well
try to produce fruit on an apple tree by tying on
apples. A paren* often says with pride: "The only
one Caott that I punish severely ia telling untruths,
v: •'. one cannot begin too early." This is flying in
the face of the fact that the sense of truth as a
Virtue :s a cultivated one. it. of -.oarse, come*
earlier and more naturally to some than to others.
bat, sp^aiting generally, it is a sense that neeris
cq*trratton. Or.ly by example* in' dailj Ufe, ty
stories of other ehudrsß, by the persijieui up
holding of the Ideal of truth. Wfl] a sense of Its
beauty and meaning be roused in a child very
gradually a? his eth'cai sense grows. There
should be r,o punishment for lying, unless very
rarely: such a virtue as truth cannot be taught
by sacn nfgative means as punishment.
"Bin there is one ethical virtue that Is emi
nently the virtue of infancy and in which 'all the
laws ar.d con:n;andm^rit«' for that age may ba
Fumrr.e.j up. that ts. 'obedience/ The very helpless
r.-ss and dependence of the young creature In
cline him to Obey form instinct, and as nature
has developed the sense of obedience first we muf<t
assiduously train it first."
And here Lady IsaN-l recommends a metroct
... probably not commend itself to many
modern mothers, namely, corporal puniahrn^n'.
This has the advantage, she says, of bring prompt
and soon over, and of foUowtaf directly on the
transgression . It save* the child from worrying,
little naggings and penalties, and cuts short pas
sionate outbursts of crying that may have danger
ou? physical effects.
At four jrean Lady Isabel looks for definite
ethical ideas, a glimmer of unselfishness and some
idea of the value of ■ruth. But the development
of these virtues should not be hurried or forced.
she says "A healthy natural selfishness Is a
child's nature, and the growth of altruism, as or
truth, depends 6- faithful observance of nature i
laws 'of exercise and nourishment."
In th, religious tra-nir.g of children Lady Isabel
also makes a plea for lees haste. The accepted
regime is to Insist on daily prayers, gra-e and
repetition of hymns and texts at the- earliest pos
sible a*re It Is not the conventional thing to
wat^h child nature and only teach it what it is
ready for to discourage irch going and ocser
raaces not ordained Tor children's use. to point out
tnat they must wait till they are older to en.'oy
what is "meant for grown up people. It is r.:a.,y
easy and comn* itself to their understanding
to explain to children that as you want them to
love" going to church they cannot go when they
an 5 too young to understand.
••We are tow however, that It does not matter
eve- (f a child does not understand, he must still
say his prayers and go to church, because these
habits are valuable and will help him when he la
° "The formation of such religious habits causes
religion to become a dead thing to children— empty
words with which they are so familiar that neither
they nor their parents realise that both a.r< tsed
injr'on empty husks. The life «nd meaning htye
Veen taken out of words by constant parrotiike
use To form religious habits at this tender age
