Excerpt from The Mother and the Child

Today almost everyone is convinced of these facts, and swaddling clothes, girths, and ambulators have almost disappeared from sale. Children, therefore, have straighter legs -and walk better and at an earlier age than formerly.

This fact is well established, and it is a great relief, for in truth what a burden it was to think that the straightness of the legs, the form of the nose, of the ears, of the head, were all the direct results of our care! What a responsibility, for which all felt unfit! What a joy to say, It 15 nature's task. I will leave the child free, I will watch him grow in beauty, I will assist quietly at the miracle.

These new concepts have up to now been confined to the body. As regards the inner life of the child there has not been a like pro gress, for in this we are still in a stage similar to that other which, by the help of science, we have left behind.
