Proper Education

 Proper Education


  It's far the nicest work ever assumed through women and men to cope with youthful minds. the best care must be taken inside the schooling of teens to so vary the manner of preparation as to call forth the excessive and noble powers of the mind. dad and mom and college-teachers are surely
disqualified to properly teach children, if they have now not first learned the lesson of self-discipline, persistence, forbearance, gentleness, and love. what an vital function for dad and mom, guardians, and instructors! there are only a few who comprehend the most essential wants of the thoughts, and how to direct the growing intellect, the growing thoughts and emotions of teens.
   
   There may be a time for training children and a time for educating children; and it's far crucial that during faculty each of those be mixed in a top notch degree. children may be trained for the provider of sin or for the carrier of righteousness. the early education of adolescents shapes their characters
each in their secular and in their religious existence. solomon says, “train up a baby within the manner he should pass: and while he's old, he will no longer leave from it.” this language is positive. the education which solomon enjoins is to direct, train, and expand. in order for parents and teachers to do that work, they must themselves apprehend “the way” the child must cross. this embraces greater than simply having a understanding of books. it takes in the whole thing that is good, virtuous, righteous, and holy. it comprehends the practice of temperance, godliness, brotherly kindness, and love to god and to one another. so as to achieve this item, the bodily, intellectual, ethical, and non secular training of kids should have interest. the schooling of children, at domestic or at college, have to not be like the schooling of dumb animals; for kids have an intelligent will, which
ought to be directed to govern all their powers. dumb animals need to be educated; for they've no longer 15 reason and mind. but the human mind must study self-discipline. it should be knowledgeable to rule the individual, even as animals are managed via a grasp, and are skilled to be submissive to him. the grasp is mind, judgment, and will for his beast. a child may be so skilled as to have, like the beast, no will of his own. even his individuality can be merged inside the
one that superintends his education; his will, to all intents and purposes, is problem to the will of the instructor. youngsters who are therefore educated will ever be poor in ethical power
and character obligation. they have got now not been taught to transport from reason and principle; their wills had been managed via every other, and the thoughts has no longer been known as out, that it might make bigger and reinforce by using workout. they have not been directed and disciplined with appreciate to their extraordinary constitutions and capabilities of thoughts, to put forth their
strongest powers whilst required. teachers ought to not stop here, however need to deliver special interest to the cultivation of the weaker colleges,that all the powers may be delivered into exercise, and carried forward from one diploma of energy to every other, that the mind may obtain due
proportions.

      There are many households of youngsters who appear like nicely educated,whilst underneath the training area; but while the system which has held them to set rules is broken up, they appear to be incapable of wondering, appearing, or identifying for themselves. those kids were goodbye
beneath iron rule, now not allowed to assume and act for themselves in those matters wherein it turned into extraordinarily proper that they should, that they have got no confidence in themselves to move out upon their personal judgment, having an opinion of their own. and once they go out from their parents to act for themselves, they may be easily led via others’ judgment within the incorrect
course. they have got now not balance of individual. they have now not been thrown upon their very own judgment as speedy and as a ways as doable, and consequently their minds have not been nicely
16 evolved and strengthened. they have goodbye been truely controlled by means of their parents that they depend wholly upon them; their parents are mind and judgment for them. then again, the young must no longer be left to assume and act independently of the judgment of their dad and mom and instructors. youngsters ought to learn to appreciate experienced judgment, and to be guided
by using their mother and father and instructors. they ought to be so knowledgeable that their
minds will be united with the minds of their dad and mom and teachers, and so advised that they are able to see the propriety of heeding their recommend. then after they cross forth from the guiding hand of their mother and father and instructors, their characters will no longer be like the reed trembling in the wind.the intense education of teens, with out well directing them to assume and act for themselves as their very own ability and flip of mind will allow, that by this means they may have boom of notion, feelings of self-admire, and confidence of their personal ability to perform, will ever produce a class who are susceptible in intellectual and ethical electricity. and while they stand in the international to act for themselves, they will display the truth that they're trained, just like the animals, and now not knowledgeable. their wills, as a substitute of being guided, had been compelled into subjection by the cruel subject of dad and mom and instructors.

        The ones mother and father and teachers who boast of getting complete manipulate of the minds and wills of the children under their care, would quit their boastings, may want to they hint out the future lives of the youngsters who are hence introduced into subjection by means of force or via fear. those are nearly wholly unprepared to proportion within the stern responsibilities of lifestyles. whilst these young people are not beneath their mother and father and instructors, and are forced to suppose and act for themselves, they're nearly sure to take a incorrect path, and yield to the power of temptation. they do no longer make this life a achievement, and the identical deficiencies are seen in their spiritual existence. could the instructors of youngsters and children have the destiny result of
their.mistaken discipline mapped out before them, they would change their plan of education. That class of teachers who are gratified that they have almost complete control of the wills of their scholars, are not the most successful teachers, although the appearance for the time being may be flattering



      God never designed that one human mind should be under the complete control of another. And those who make efforts to have the individuality of their pupils merged in themselves, and to be mind, will, and conscience for them, assume fearful responsibilities. These scholars may, upon certain occasions, appear like well-drilled soldiers. But when the restraint is removed, there will be seen a want of independent action from firm principle existing in them. Those who make it their object to so educate their pupils that they may see and feel that the power lies in themselves to make men and women of firm principle, qualified for any position in life, are the most useful and permanently successful teachers. Their work may not show to the very best advantage to careless observers, and their labors may not be valued as highly as are those of the teacher who holds the minds and wills of his scholars by absolute authority; but  the future lives of the pupils will show the fruits of the better plan of education.
 
      There is danger of both parents and teachers commanding and dictating too much, while they fail to come sufficiently into social relation with their children or scholars. They often hold themselves too much reserved, and exercise their authority in a cold, unsympathizing manner which cannot win the hearts of their children and pupils. If they would gather the children close to them, and show that they love them, and would manifest an interest in all their efforts, and even in their sports, sometimes even being a child among children, they would make the children very happy, and would gain their love and win their confidence. And the 18 children would sooner respect and love the authority of their parents and teachers.

            The habits and principles of a teacher should be considered of even greater importance than his literary qualifications. If he is a sincere Christian, he will feel the necessity of having an equal interest in the physical, mental, moral, and spiritual education of his scholars. In order to exert the right influence, he should have perfect control over himself,and his own heart should be richly imbued with love for his pupils, which will be seen in his looks, words, and acts. He should have firmness of character, and then he can mold the minds of his pupils, as well as instruct them in the sciences. The early education of youth generally shapes their characters for life. Those who deal with the young should be very careful to call out the qualities of the mind, that they may better know how to direct its power so that they may be exercised to the very best account.

       Enfeebling the mind. dad and mom do now not understand that they're sowing the seed that allows you to bring forth sickness and loss of life. many youngsters have been ruined for lifestyles with the aid of urging the intellect, and neglecting to reinforce the physical powers. many have died in formative years due to the route pursued by injudicious mother and father and school-teachers in forcing their younger intellects, through flattery or worry, whilst they have been too young to peer the inner of a school room. their minds had been taxed with classes, once they must not had been referred to as out, however kept lower back till the physical constitution changed into strong enough to endure mental attempt. small youngsters must be left as unfastened as lambs to run out-of-doorways, to be free and glad, and ought to be allowed the maximum favorable possibilities to put the inspiration for sound constitutions. dad and mom ought to be the only teachers in their kids until they have
reached eight or ten years of age. as rapid as their minds can understand it, the mother and father need to open earlier than them god’s first-rate book of nature. the mother ought to have less love for the synthetic in her residence, and within the instruction of her dress for display, and have to find time to cultivate, in herself and in her children, a love for the stunning buds and opening flora. via calling the eye of her children to their exclusive colors and form of forms, she will be able to lead them to familiar with god, who made all of the lovely things which attract and satisfaction them. she can lead their minds as much as their writer, and wake up in their younger hearts a love for their heavenly father, who has manifested so extraordinary love for them. parents can companion god with all his created works. the simplest schoolroom for youngsters from eight to 10 years of age have to be inside the outdoor, amid the beginning flora and nature’s lovely surroundings. and their only textbook
need to be the treasures of nature. those instructions, imprinted upon the minds of young children amid the fine, appealing scenes of nature, will no longer soon be forgotten.
in order for children and teens to have health, cheerfulness, 21
