SPEAK TRUTHFULLY TO CHILDREN. Never threaten children with a punishment more severe than it is intended to inflict, with such phrases, for instance, as If you do so-and- so I will cut your ears off," or similar absurd and barbarous threats. The child thus threatened will soon learn that his parent's words were false, and instead of promoting obedience they usually have the opposite effect. How often little ones are told direct falsehoods, as, if they are not quiet, the black man will carry them off," or the bears will eat them np," and many other equally senseless expressions, used to play upon their fears and frighten them into good behaviour. Under such training it will take but a little while for the child to learn to distrust such a parent, and thi) sweet confidence which should always exist between parent and child be broken. Perfect truthfulness should characterise all our dealings with children if we would have them become men and women who will be an honour to us, to their fellow men, and to themselves.
