Nothing Is New

I found this little article in Reader’s Digest and wanted to share it with you. The article is written by Caesar Nawalkowski, Alberta.

As I read “Kids Gone Wild” (July 2011 edition) I remembered reading the following passage in Ellen G. White’s book Education (1903).

“Children should not be long confined within doors, nor should they be required to apply themselves closely to study until a good foundation has been laid for physical development. For the first eight or ten years of a child’s life the field or garden is the best schoolroom, the mother is the best teacher, nature the best lesson book. Even when the child is old enough to attend school, his health should be regarded as of greater importance than a knowledge of books. He should be surrounded with the conditions most favourable to both physical and mental growth.”

At the end of the article Caesar writes, Isn’t it nice to see us catching up to the past?
