Statement by Susanna Wesley “In order to form the minds of children, the first thing to be done is to conquer the will and to bring them into an obedient temper. To inform the understanding is a work of time and must with children, proceed by slow degrees, as they’re able to bear it. But the subjecting of the will is a thing which must be done at once and the sooner the better. “For by neglecting timely correction, they will contract a stubbornness and an obstinacy, which is hardly ever conquered and never without using such severity as would be painful to me as to the children. In the esteem of the world, those who withhold timely correction would pass for kind and indulgent parents, whom I call cruel parents, who permit their children to get habits which they know must afterward be broken.”
