Early Years: Habit Training

"Every day, every hour, the parents are either passively or actively forming those habits in their children upon which, more than upon anything else, future character and conduct depend."

"Cleanliness, order, neatness, regularity, punctuality, are all 'branches' of infant education."
Volume 1, pg 125
