dc.description.abstractThe Chinese home has been the most influential factor of the nation. Its attitude towards the men, women and children in the past was that produced largely by Confucian ideals: the man had absolute power; the woman had but two duties; namely, to obey her husband his mother, to bear sons; the children, their education, conduct and property were by law under full control of the head of the family. The double standard for the sexes, and a low estimate of women fostered under the old system, are disappearing under the influence of ideals which are being disseminated by Christian education. Under this same influence the old narrow ideals of the clan life are changing and broadening into nationalistic ideals. The Chinese home, pregnant with new life, offers an unparalleled challenge to Christian education.en_US
