Excerpt from Home for Good

The time of leaving school, as all will agree, is a critical period for both girls and boys, and it is often a period of great difficulty for their fond and anxious parents. The old home relations of the nursery have long been broken through. For six years, seven years, or even longer, these growing lads and maidens have appeared only as visitors in their father's house. Even in the best regulated families the child home for the holidays is a privileged being, while in those that are less well-regulated he develops too often into a sort of chartered libertine, the short duration of whose period of freedom is made the excuse for every kind of irregularity. Moreover, under modern conditions, the longer vacations are constantly spent in some hotel or temporary residence by the seaside, where every detail of daily life militates against even the mildest form of discipline. This is not always a good preparation for the final home-coming, which in the case of most girls and not a few boys, follows immediately upon the end of their school-days.
