HONOR YOUR CHILDREN
SAYS HELEN WARE
Evils of Modem Life, Deceit nnd Dis
honesty, Due to Parents' Tyrannous
Training of Children.
"Honor your fnthor nnd your mother this
hns been tho Injunction that parentH have too
often and too long hold as a threat over their
offspring. Honor your children such a re
versal ot tho Fourth Commandment observed
by parents would do more good In tho -world,
In my opinion, than a tyrronlzlng assertion of
parentnl authority. It Is well for children to
honor tholr parents when thoy deserve such
honor. But pnrents should first seek to merit
this by tholr treatment of their children. We
may talk nbout the evils of modern llfo, of
deceit nnd dishonesty In business, politics nnd
tho domestic relations; but these ovlls can't bo
oradlcutod until tho source Is removed, nnd
tho sourco Is In tho homo. Men aro what their
parents havo made them. Cowardice, treachery
and dishonesty In llfo Invariably develop from
seed sown In tho child life,"
Miss Helen Ware, who has distinguished
herself by her characterizations In dramas of
modern llfo, was sitting in tho reception room
of her suite In tho Vcndig last evening. Miss
Ware had been discussing the problems of
modern llfo ns affording material for drama,
nnd tho conversation turned from marriage to
the relation of parent and child. Miss Ware,
whoso personality Is as magnetic as It Is em
phatic. Is trenchantly direct in her opinions.
Life, to Miss Ware, Is a serious thing.
"In life," sho declared, "the absolutely
greatest things aro truth and justice. All our
evils, nil our problems, exist in the lack of
truth and justice. To got down to funda
mentals, this applies to business, politics, the
relations of men and women, tho Inequalities,
oppressions and wrongs of our soclnl nnd
economic life. And to gut to the cause of
untruth, Injustice, dishonesty, lying and deceit
wo must go right to tho homo whero the child
Is reared. 'Spare tho rod and spoil Mie child'
Is tho very command which has spoiled char
acter and spoiled life. If wo wnnt to correct
abuso wo must correct tho cause, and we must,
thurefore, correct patents.
"Fear Is the fundamental evil, the original
sin, In human life. Now children ure taught
to fear their parents, and later to fear their
teachers. Fear makes cowards. Punishment
Is tho cause of misdoing and crime. If, in
stead of threatening children, parents encour
aged them always to toll the truth without
fear of punishmont there would be less wrong
doing In tho world today. If parents honored
their children there would be more honor
"What is tho condition in the average home?
A child Is restricted by riffid rules. It is trained
to seo only tho parents' point of vluw, Tho
father and mother never consider the child's
point of view. Tho child. In playing, acci
dentally bteolts n vaso. or has some mishap.
It is then scolded or Uo.-ged. The result is
that tho child, instead of udmltttng trivial
misdoings, begins to lie. It b).,mes whatever
accidonts huppen on the servant, tho dog or
the cat. Thut child continues to lie through
life. Into the plastic natuie of the Immature
bUng the clement of fear has been Implanted,
and with fear, deceit and cowurdlce. All the
later kindnesses of llfo will not eliminate that
poison in the character.
"A child should never bo punished. X would
novor scold a ohlld. -Now If you don't stop
that I'll spank you' how of ton do ue
hear this? A child should never be threatened.
A child should never bo visited with outbursts
of totnper. Scolded and whipped, as the aver
ago child U. It cannot but develop a bullying
nnd untruthful nature.
"Reforms are not made spontaneously or
iniraeuloualy-elthor In political affairs or hu.
man liven. Wo aro aU what we have grown to
c, anu our children will be what wo train
them to be. The great reform to be accom
plished in modern life Is that of unthinking,
unsympathetic. Ignorant parents. urnu
must learn to be considerate of their children,
to respect their children, to be able to put
themselves In their children's place and eee as
their eh'lldreit see. Tluy must love and tole
rate, und not frluhten and intimidate. They
should make children feel that, even If hey
