On the subject of the moral upbringing of children, the Master once had this to say:
“When I was a teenager, my father warned me about certain places in the city.
He said, ‘Don’t ever go into a night club, son.’
‘Why not, father?’ I said.
‘Because you’ll see tings that you shouldn’t.’
“This, of course, aroused my curiosity. And at the first opportunity I got I went into a night club.”
The disciples asked, “And did you see something you shouldn’t have?”
“I certainly did,” said the Master. “I saw my father.”
