Parenting Tip

"I had lunch with a young woman, aged three," Arnold Bennett once recalled. "After a perfect dickens of a row she had been sent to bed supperless last night for obstreperous and obstinate naughtiness. This affair with its horrid sequel must have provided her with sensations quite novel in her expeience of the world. Today she exhibited the manners of a Count D'Orasy, the sweetness of a Louise de la Valliere, and the reasonableness of a John Stuart Mill. And yet there are parents who maintain that the best way to teach righteousness to children is by example only, never by correction or deprivation."
