(ON RAISING CHILDREN (THOUGHT SEVEN)
Three of our favorite lines come from th
of George Herbert...
"Throw away thy rod,
Throw away thy wrath
Take the gentle path."
Would you have gentle children...
then be gentle
Would you have tenderhearted children...
then be tenderhearted
Would you have loving children...
then be loving
Would you have your children honor your...
then honor them.
Give them the best of everything you are
Give them the greater you
the higher you
the holier you
For your children's sake...and yours...
throw away your rod and wrath and
"take the gentle path."
