The Mother as an Educator

Christian Science reveals that God's children are beautiful, complete, whole, and mature, and that they need no cultivation to make them so. Children are actually perfect now; they are made in the likeness of God, the Father and Mother of all. As a mother recognizes these facts, she is proportionately released from the burdening sense of false responsibilities and fear and freed to undertake the training of her children with understanding, confidence, and joy.

Mrs. Eddy states, "A mother is the strongest educator, either for or against crime." Science and Health, p. 236: When does she begin? Surely this teaching begins with the first tender, warm communications of affection. Then it develops to meet all the myriad demands of every state and stage of the infant, child, teen-ager, and young adult.
