Abstract

Amusement for a younger sister depends upon her age. Suppose she is just ten months. There's not much to do for her when she cries except carry her about the house and change her diaper. But that isn't very amusing.

A few months later she will be delighted to yank on your hair, poke your eyes, or grab for your spectacles.

When she begins to walk, she will find many things to be amused with around the house. There will probably be broken lamps, torn clothing and paper, and many things damaged. You will not be required to do more than keep her little head and hands out of mischief and to keep them occupied in something that is entertaining but not destructive. This will prove to be very difficult because clay sticks to rugs, sand is never swept away to the last grain, and a toy will always be bumped into the furniture.
