Learning From the Great Teacher

by Watchtower Bible and Tract Society of Pennsylvania

All parents participate in an event that is beyond full human understanding. They each contribute a part of themselves. As a result what develops within the mother is a fully formed living person. It is not surprising, therefore, that when a baby is born, people speak of it as "the miracle of birth." Of course, producing children is only the beginning of the responsibility of parents. First, human babies are almost entirely helpless and dependent, but as they grow, they need more than physical attention. They need help to develop mentally, emotionally, morally and spiritually. This book has been published to aid parents or guardians in this task.
