Excerpt from The Mother's Year-Book: Being a Practical Application of the Results of Scientific Child-Study to the Problems of the First Year of Childhood
IN all the range of human experience there is nothing more transforming in its effect upon all those who are near at hand than the advent of a little baby - especially the first one. Yet, to unanointed eyes, what is he? Just a little red, squirming thing, with eyes shut for the most part, with tight-clenched fists, with a toothless, sucking mouth, a hairless head, much too large for his body, - an impudent little thing who makes the whole adult household stand around, and imposes his own laws upon every one, regardless Of their preferences; a frail little thing, who has to be handled in ways so mysterious.
