Ctltt* Lumtitt THE HERALD OF HEALTH, MAY 1961
GREAT man was once asked what he considered to be the greatest service anyone might possibly render. His response was forthright. "If I had only one opportunity in life I would ask for the privilege of show ing some youth the right path." This opportunity comes to every father and every mother, but un fortunately many parents wake up too late to grasp it. Of all the words in any language, home, or its equivalent, is, or should be, the dearest. Around the home should centre the fondest attractions, the sweetest memories. Mother, the queen of the home, may by her exemplary life, her happy disposi tion and her gentle discipline teach her children lessons the worth of which only eternity will tell. Children crave comradeship and sympathy which parents alone can impart. Children's little hurts and bruises provide wonderful occasions for fellowship and counsel. More over, if Mother is a companion in time of need she thereby gains the child's confidence when greater trials loom ahead. Should the par ents neglect their privilege and re sponsibility in smaller matters, however, they will discover that they have alienated the child and that he will go to some other source for satisfaction. We are living in days when the THE HERALD OF HEALTH, MAY 1961 The Chance of a Lifetime home is in jeopardy. Some mothers are busy with their own social en gagements; many women spend most of their time in fostering their own adornment. Other moth ers feel that they must accept em ployment in order to supplement the family budget. Then there are mothers who are in the position of the woman who "had so many children she didn't know what to do." There are also those who get married so young that they have not learned how to operate a home. It is a case of the child rearing a child. Since the home is the basic unit of any nation, and of civiliza tion, it behoves all who read these lines to give it careful thought. Happy indeed is the family in which both mother and father ac cept and discharge nobly the priv ileges of parenthood! Let not the father feel that his only role is that of a bread-winner. He is the head of the household. The word husband is derived from two words, house and band. As head of the household, the hus band should not sit idly by or va cate the premises when an over worked wife is vainly striving to cope with the household manage ment. Every child is entitled to have as a father one who really cares for his home. The knack of combining affection and kindness with authority and discipline is not an easy matter. Fathers can blend these qualities of leadership to pro duce optimum response in their children if they will but exercise patience. The religious factor in the home is of paramount importance. In fact, without this, all efforts are futile. One has only to read the speeches of today's foremost ana lysts to recognize that the great need of knowledge today is not merely in the scientific sphere. It is rather the need of a strong moral and spiritual fibre with which to undergird society lest the home, the nation, yea civilization itself, perish. If all fathers would con sider themselves priests over their own households and would by pre cept and example guide their chil dren, the world would soon become a better place. HERALD OF HEALTH would be remiss in its obligation if it failed to emphasize home duties and privi leges. Fathers and mothers should not count it merely an obligation, but rather a prerogative to save their children from the deluge of lawlessness and confusion in the world. "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." Likewise, a happy, well disciplined home will forestall an avalanche of trouble. -J.I.C.
