Winning the Affection of Children
Smile, parents; smile, teachers.
If your heart is sad, let not your face reveal the fact. Let the sunshine from a loving, grateful heart light up the countenance.
Unbend from your iron dignity, adapt yourselves to the children's needs, and make them love you. You must win their affection, if you would impress religious truth upon their heart.
