“I have heard that, with some persons, temperance â€“ that is, moderation â€“ is almost impossible; and if abstinence be an evil (which some have doubted), no one will deny that excess is a greater. Some parents have entirely prohibited their children from tasting intoxicating liquors; but a parent’s authority cannot last for ever; children are naturally prone to hanker after forbidden things; and a child, in such a case, would be likely to have a strong curiosity to taste, and try the effect of what has been so lauded and enjoyed by others, so strictly forbidden to himself â€“ which curiosity would generally be gratified on the first convenient opportunity; and the restraint once broken, serious consequences might ensue.”
