A Well-balanced Home

At a recent school meeting a panel comprised of the principal, a police officer, and a psychologist discussed the problem of juvenile delinquency and its solution. All agreed that the basic need was a well-balanced home, in which the mother lovingly supervised the child and the father disciplined him.

Christian Science is in full agreement with the idea of a balanced home, but puts the emphasis on spiritual qualities expressed in the home rather than on the number of people present. Children from homes complete with parents, brothers, and sisters are at times still neglected, unloved, and undisciplined, while in some instances a child from a home with just one parent may well have a wholesome experience of love, discipline, and companionship.
