To Raise A Child


It is not easy nowadays... To raise a child or two... And have
them be in every way... Obedient to you... Somehow it seems so
different from... The time when you were small... As you adjust
the picture of... The days that you recall... If only by some magic
wand... You now could take their place... You would remember
childhood and ... The fears you had to face... You would re-
menber clearly, and ... You would appreciate... That some-
times children disobey... And sometimes they are late... You
would become more tolerant... And lend a gentle hand... As
lovingly and loyally... Your heart would understand.
