Theory and Practice II, 1883–1900

Chapter

Abstract

This chapter focuses on Morley’s attempts to parent his stepchildren and nephew as they transitioned into adulthood—a time at which, Morley reasoned, children should be responsible for their own life paths. It documents how Morley moved between the positions of intimacy and distance as he aspired to parent with discreet indifference and assume the role of guide and friend. The chapter examines some flashpoints in liberal parenting, including differences between Morley and the children whom he raised over matters of education and religion.
