Has It ever occurred to you lhat whelher or not your children dread and fear growing old will depend to a large extent on how you, their parents, meet and conquer the problem of old age?

So how you meet the many and often discouraging problems, of the later years of life -is of great importance to your children. Not only because If you'meet (hem with courage your children's lives are freer of strain and worry, but because you are showing them by your example that courage and Independence don't belong exclusively to the younger years but can last a lifetime.
