I Can Trust My Boy Anjnhere
Vfe hear this expression from
parents occasionally Sometimes
with an assent that the confidence
is not misplaced sometimes with
a feeling of intense pity for the
blindness of parental affection A
few fathers and mothers retain the
unreserved confidence of their
sons even after they have grown
to be men and these can feel sure
of not having their faith betrayed
But with much tho larger number
this is not the case The sons of
some tery dircreet parents imbibe
principles and contract habits of
which the old folks have no sus
picion Notunfrequentlythe boy
but slightly advanced in his teens
has made a progress in tho courses
of sin at which his tender
hearted mother would be absolute
ly appalled But she knows less
of these things than do others
Her love blinds her to indications
which would lead her to suspect
if not to fully know that things
are not going right if she were
not so fond She may therefore
in all innocence dwell upon the
goodness of her sons while her
hearers who are acquainted with
their shortcomings will suspect
her of hypocrisy The father
keeps on believing that his boys
are deporting themselves as they
should when every one else knows
how sadly they are going astray
All this might not be so did not
parents so readily recieve offense
at the attempt of any one to tell
them of the faults of their chil
dren It is a task upon which the
most intimate friend will hardly
dare venture The pastor to
whom the parents will go for ad
vice and consolation shrinks from
letting them know that their son
visits dram shops and frequents
gambling houses It is a well
known fact that most fathers and
mothers will regard such infor
mation qs an impertinence and
will cherish a lasting resentment
against tho informer Such being
the case it is small matter for
wonder that people will see the
sons of their best friends going on
to ruin without saying a word of
it to the persons who nre most
interested It is quite as small a
matter for wonder that parents
often continue under the delusion
that their boys aro getting along
woll when every one else knows
them to be on the high road to
ruin It would be better if per
sons afterbecoming parents would
recollect something of what they
were as young people They
would not then take it for gran
ted that their sons are what they
ought to bo or be offended with
those who give information of the
going wrong Sunny South
