children, the good housewife assumes the responsibility of teaching and guidance. She is
kind but firm, reasonable but not indulgent. She believes in just discipline and
enforces it religiously. Children are taught responsibility and courtesy at an
early age. They are to share house hold duties as soon as feasible. Hence her children are
not liabilities but assets. They are deferential of instead of defiant, and they are
helpful instead 0 disruptive.
The housewife, being
their mother, always sets a good example for them to see and to emulate. By deeds as
by words, she always teaches them to be just, to be kind, to be fair to all, and to have a
real consideration for others. She guides them to realize the great meaning in duty,
and the infinite joy in learning and in doing good.
