Bubbles by Elizabeth Jane Gardner Beaugereau
“There are many different influences that make up the whole of child training. Some of these are bold and open and can be seen by all. Others are more hidden, and only noticed by a discerning eye. As we know, it is often the hidden ones that bear more fruit. I would like to focus on one of these quiet yet powerful hidden principles of child training.
“There is nothing in the way of direct teaching that will ever have so wide and lasting effect on our children as the spirit of the home. What is the spirit of the home? It is the atmosphere of the home. It is that mysterious air that a child breathes in every day quite unconsciously. One author, of a hundred years ago, explained it this way. ‘It is the environment that surrounds the child, where he breathes in unconsciously, ideas of right living that emanate from his parents.’
“Every look of gentleness and tone of reverence, every word of kindness and act of help imprints on him. The child does not think of these things. But they excite in him the desire to do that which is right and good. It is here the child gains those enduring things that express themselves as a lifelong kinship to either things earthly or things divine.”
