The chief reason why women Bret

doesn't feel it right for her to

It is a common thing nowadays to
hear women complain that their
14. or 15, or 16-year-old children
are entirely beyond their Control.
The boys are hoodlums. The girls
are painted-up little Jezebels who
roam the streets and go with companions
of whom their parents do
not approve, and they come and go
:it what hours they like.
It's because mothers pass the
buck. When Maud and Johnny
were tiny tots and howled for whatever
they wanted until they got it.
instead of turning them across her
knee, and lifting them up to the
higher life by means of an old
slipper, or a bed slat, or anything
that was handy, mother threatened
that she would tell father and have
him discipline them when he got

But by the time father got home

father was tired and didn't want to !
be worried by an unpleasant scene,
and the result was that Maud and
Johnny went scot-free, and were
confirmed in their opinion that the
way to get .what you want is to
yell for It.
It takes a lot of strength and
nerve to wrestle with head-strong,
high-strung children, and to teach
them self-control, and obedience,
and respect for the rights of others,
and the great majority of women
ar?- too weak, and trifling, and selfindulgent
themselves to do this.,
Th^y leave the disagreeable task
to ? mebody else, and in so doing
they commit the unpardonable sin,

responsibility to her children. They

In an enormous number of cases
fathers also pass the buck as regards
the rearing of the childt'en.
They put it up to the school
tea'hers, and expect strangers to
do for their children what they have
been too careless and too indifferent
to do. Any school teacher will
tell you that It would amaze you
to know how many, children come
out of respectable homes who hfeve
not been taught even the common
ustrfs of decent society. They have
the manners of ruffians. They do j

attempt Is a failure, because the
teachers get the children too late,
after they are ruined. Fathers and
mothers who are too weak to discipline
their children themselves,
and who pass on their duty to
others, should be fore-handed about

And what is all this talk about
