In The Guiding Mode
I have this theory about raising children.
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
To play with them is fine.
As long as time is given,
In the providing to them meetings with discipline.
To play with them AND wanting to be their friend,
When in the guiding mode,
Is not advisable.
I know of no child respectable,
Who only knows fun and games.
And those boys and girls only exposed,
To playing with someone everyday...
Grow up to be adults,
Or something that appears as such...
Without wisdom shown on display.
It hasn't been for them made a necessity.
