LEttON TWO How t Fight It
In th Child.
TIMIDITY annihilate the most
precious tills of the Gods. It
keep a man from conquering false
ham. Timidity I not natural; it
comes tram the faulty education ot
children who ar mad self centered.
from the first th child should be taught its responsibilt
tiea and self respect, but without vanity. A child ahould
be taught early to direct himself and not rely altogether
upon honorably grown other. Much of timidity is due
to him never having had to think tor himself. Can a
staff kept green bear the weight of a man? A child
taught to tremble before its pareata or teachers Is
forced to b timid for fear of reproof. Confidence im
planted m a child's heart aeaaona the taC it Is verv
wrong not to answer a child's question seriously. If
yoa do not answer them, or answer harshly, yoa msk
