Children - How To Create Interest
You are now to take up a systematic course of training with your child. Do you realize what this means? It is not merely that you are to train the mind, but that you are to form a life.
The Child - Its Care And Nurture
The beautiful consummation of home life arranged both by God and Nature is a baby. The woman who has borne a child after the stress and pain of her labor rejoices in that first baby cry as no soul on earth can rejoice in anything else.
Children - Physical Care
The care of the child from the moment of its birth is now known to be a matter of prime necessity, not merely because the child arrives as a stranger in a strange land, but because he has everything to learn and what at the moment is more important has no means of doing anything for himself.
The Nursing Mother
When the child is nursing the food is clean and practically sterile ; but even here care of the mother's person is of exceeding importance. The mother at this point is the preparatory laboratory for her child's food.
Children - The Development Of The Play Instinct
Play is the occupation of childhood and begins in the very earliest elements of the baby's consciousness of itself and its powers.
The Child - Its Physical Development
The problem of the physical development of the child, before he comes to stage where we speak of him as a boy, is one of the commanding questions of mother care and interest.
Children - Developing The Play Instinct
Almost from the birth of the child it instinctively begins its own physical training. To watch the tendencies it manifests, to correct the faulty ones, as previously explained, and to exercise those which are in the right and proper direction, is one of the first cares of the parent.
The Physical Training Of Boys And Girls
Your child is now emerging from the baby stage. He has acquired a fair usage of his little body and has begun the active use of his mind, and is now a subject of extended training and a program.
Children - Habit Formation And Habit Drill
The first thing to note in this connection is that we are all bundles of habits. Habit makes the world go round. Habits keep most people as good as they are. Habits make bad people as bad as they are.
Children - Carriage And Exercise
Carriage of the body is often a symbol of character and self-respect. You will notice that when we are very conscious of our importance we rise to our full height as the heroine in the novel does.
Parental Example And Parental Admonition
Just one word about the relation of the instruction of the parent and the example of the parent. You cannot tell a boy to keep clean if you are not in the habit of keeping clean yourself.
The Child - Its Mental Development
The great aim in watching the mental development of children lies in that by this means we discover in time for their remedying, defects which if taken in time can be altered.
Children - Environment As A Factor In Mental Development
So when you think of the environment, think not only of the material, but much more of the mental environment. What does the child hear talked about? That becomes the raw material of his thinking.
Children - Social Habits As A Factor In Mental Growth
Man is a social animal. He lives with others of his kind and can live with them only as he is livable. The social atmosphere of a home helps or hinders here to a most amazing degree.
Children - Spiritual Factors In Mental Growth
Here we are dealing with the most intangible of influences. This does not mean religion, though it includes it. It means such things as reverence, love, modesty, appreciation, and the like.
The Infant Mind
In the very earliest dawn of life the formation of character begins. Indeed, it has already begun long before, but we can now begin our task of guiding and shaping it aright.
