Mary Martha Butt

  • All children are by nature evil, and while they have none but the natural evil principle to guide them, pious and prudent parents must check their naughty passions in any way that they have in their power, and force them into decent and proper behavior and into what are called good habits.

Mary Martha Butt, English children's writer

(1775 - 1851)

Full name: Mary Martha Butt Sherwood.
