“By going that way yourself,” was the reply. Words are easily forgotten but the example of a good life is never forgotten. It behooves parents to keep their tempers under control and let love’s winsome ways and wooing words adorn their lives.

There is no more effective way of making children dislike their homes and break home ties and leave home than the habit of faultfinding, wrangling, and ill-tempered argument on the part of the parents.

Peace, gentleness, love and consideration bind heart to heart, strengthen the ties of affection, and make home both interesting and attractive. ConĀ­cord is essential to happiness.
