her gratification when her children do
well, and is always, censuring them when
she sees anything amiss, they are discou
raged and unhappy. They feel that it is
useless to try to please. Their disposi

ceaseless fretting ; and at last, finding
that whether .they do well or ill, they are
equally found fault with, they 'relinquish

efforts to please, by smiles and affection.
