Our Duty to the Children
Philadephia: American New-Church Tract and Publication Society, 1897
In this small book, William L. Worcester follows childhood from hereditary and prenatal influences through infancy, childhood, and the adolescent years. He gives insights drawn from the writings of Swedenborg on how parents and teachers can influence children for the good by guiding them lovingly and gently, yet also firmly, toward a reliance on the Lord in preference to their own will. In many ways ahead of its time (the late nineteenth century), this book is all about wise and loving guidance, not harsh and arbitrary discipline. It can easily be read at a sitting--and will reward the reader with many fine insights on the stages of childhood, from a spiritual perspective.
