76 Unto Every Father Hath Been Enjoined The Instruction Of His Son And Daughter In The Art Of Reading And Writing #48

'Abdu'l-Baha, in His Tablets, not only calls attention to the

responsibility of parents to educate all their children, but He also

clearly specifies that the training and culture of daughters is more

necessary than that of sons, for girls will one day be mothers, and

mothers are the first educators of the new generation. If it is not

possible, therefore, for a family to educate all the children, preference

is to be accorded to daughters since, through educated mothers, the

benefits of knowledge can be most effectively and rapidly diffused

throughout society.
