What is the work of a parent?- To train a child in self-government, aside from which there is no true character development! Never should a parent lose sight of this goal .
The child is an individual with a “power akin to that of the Creator.” He has a mind, a will, a conscience of his own . He must have an experience of his own . He must be trained to use aright this great gift of God . (Education,p . 289)
