The youth of a nation are the trustees of prosperity. In keeping with the idea of youth as trustees of posterity, Dr. Solomb believes that the proper time to begin training an infant is, indeed, twenty years before he is born, and in order to train infants properly, the parents themselves must have be in properly trained. It is generally stated that being a parent is the biggest job in the world. The job of being a parent must have some end and goal; otherwise, it is on a plane with the uncertain work of a casual laborer. This aim should be the emancipator of adolescent children from their parents so that they may meet the realities of the world in a spirit of cheerful efficient independence. Sound physical growth, an intellectual development realizing all potentials, and guidance of the emotion to equilibrium and socialized self-control are definite goals of achievement bound up in the job of parenthood. from a standpoint of society, this truth is sure; Parents are social trustees rather than individuals deriving pleasure and satisfaction from their own creation. Parents are responsible to society for the offspring whom they bring into the world and who must be taught and trained to participate in social living. Therefore, the parent should have a definite knowledge of the care and training of the child for the present order.
