Guess What?

Susannah Wesley DID teach her children to cry quietly.  :)

The little Wesleys were taught to fear the rod from a year old or earlier and to cry quietly, so that ‘that most odious noise of the crying of children was rarely heard in the house’. 

History Today says so.  

So glad I figured this out.  

And I agree with her.  Unnecessary crying of children is odious, in my opinion.
