THE BLACK SHEEP
A woman has written to me, want-
ing to know what to do in the case of
her ton. She says he won’t go to
school, he won’t do useful work and
tends generally to consort with dis-
I may as well confess right now
that I cannot answer her question. I
know all the arguments about love
and kind treatment and psychological
study and patience and son on, and
I know also that there are cases that
none of these things fit.
I do not suppose there is oneUftj
ily among my readers unable to con-
fess to some sort of black sheep:
some boy or some girl that perists in
doing wrong in spite of everything.
Much is said of preachers’ sons
who turn out badly and the implica-
tion is that they have been treated
too strictly in their youth, so that in
later years they rebel.
Some say that children should be
carefully disciplined and rigidly in-
structed, but such children have not
always done so well in later years.
In fact I have known the children
of utterly loose and careless parents
to turn out to be strict models ot
propriety, and others who have had
every advantage of favorable en-
vironment go swiftly to the dogs.
