Mrs. Child on Motherhood

May 15, 2006 @ 2:39 am | Filed under: Mrs. Child's Wise Advice

“Gentleness, patience, and love, are almost everything in education; especially to those helpless little creatures, who have just entered into a world where everything is new and strange to them. Gentleness is a sort of mild atmosphere; and it enters into a child’s soul, like the sunshine into the rose-bud, slowly but surely expanding it into beauty and vigor.”

—from The Mother’s Book
by Lydia Maria Child
