Children

Children choose their parents, not because they seem ideal to the coming child but because it seems the least harmful choice.  The child’s spirit often overshadows and leads the parent, for example to your school. ..what do the parents know?  By this child coming to your school, that child, not necessarily the parent, has taken a decision.  How do you dare to challenge that decision?
You say, very well, but is she really prepared to make a decision on behalf of the child in this fashion?  Whom does she think this child is?   Her property or the property of its Creator?  Her mind or the child’s own mind?  How much authority does she really think she ought to have and exercise over that messenger from Heaven?
Permit not the parent to interfere with the career of the child, if you possibly can avoid it.
