Chesterton: The Parent

“The educationist generally deals with only one section of the pupil’s mind. But he always deals with only one section of the pupil’s life. The parent has to deal, not only with the whole of the child’s character, but also with the whole of the child’s career.”

– G.K. Chesterton, in his essay “Turning Inside Out”
