There are often times when parents need to interpret their children to teacher, but there ere times occasionally when teachers can find faults or gocd qualities -which may not show up at home. Therefore, I would beg all parents, before they mal:u any rash staicment-3 lo the children, to go and talk things over with the teachers. Tlie health of children should of course, be carefully guarded bolh In school nnd at home.
