Train a tree when it is young

“The child is the father of the man”, is well said where the good man is seen in the child. Evil conduct corrupts good manners, and many a time parents never care about the manner of their children. Good trees produce good fruits may not be said of some parents, especially if they fail to do their parental duty on their children. Whether the children begin early to sin, or otherwise depends on the hand that made the shape. Better have a child or two you can be proud of in all weather than litter like sow and live sorrowfully. As ill wealth blinds the king’s mind, so are the thought of the wayward boys heart attack to their parents. There is no need of breeding a population of a faithless generation without the will and resources to make them good citizens. James and John feared God and respected men, and it was seen in their wise mother.
