Rear Action

Rear Action.

Instead of lisping, “Dear grannie, I love oo,” which was the stock expression of Little Hester in all the best books of the pre-psychology age, they yelp, “Aw! Granny! Be your age! Snap out of it, and give us something with a kick in it!”

Such children are not reared. Certainly they rear. It is the one thing a child does naturally. They rear all over the house. They rear in public. page 53 You can hear them rearing at almost any time of the day and night.

We do not suggest that all the young of the species are rearers. There are still parents who believe in the sanctity of parenthood, mothers’ rights, and the laying on of hands.
