The parent plans the day for the child, including activities and rest, play and effort.

The child receives each instruction without knowing its purpose. I am bid run — is this a game or did danger arise? I am given a passage to read — is this knowledge I must have, or respite from some other rote task?

I am no beast of labor, but your beloved child. Lord, let me seek joy in every activity today, for I am in your care.

(Letter #2,816)
