As it remanís nerly and uninaHngeable cbildrcn ;it the table, tliere is one simple rule - it is tliis : If a cliild does nOt come quiotly and take liis (iwn proper place, and tliere wait till e is helpcd ; and tlien if lie ahould not be satisfied with what he is lielped to, in ordinary circuuistancci' ; indeed, should lic behave in any Wfty sucli as would put you to the blush - with company - sond him away instantly. Do not threatou, as the niajority of pareuts do : " You shall leave the table, if you don't behave bet ter. I teil you, you sliall." What cares he! Ho knows it is notliing but brcath ; he has heard the thrc it ever since he can remember. No ; let the rule be understood and establishcd ; let it beacted on as instantancously as the re port follows the flash of a gun, only with perfect gentleness, as woll as decisión, on your part. There should bc no harshnes.s of voice or roughness of hand ; indeed, tliere will be uo nced of' it, if such shall be the wcll understood rule, [t niay bc said that the child, by some inadvortence, may Diake au unintentioiuil mistaket Very well ; then the certaiu penalty will prevent furtbcr caroU'&sness. -
