The Book of Shadows[]

Hoping their would be a solution to stop Matthew from crying, Phoebe located an entry reading thus:

On The Place of Magic In The Rearing of a Child
A child is the frailest and most innocent
of all innocents.It is therefore unlawful
and unnatural to use magic to change
what is in the nature of a child. Before
casting a spell that affects a child, the
witch must ask herself, "am I doing this
for the child or am I doing this for myself?
For the witch who is bothered by the noise
of a child and would seek to use magic to
bring forth peace and quiet, this tome
can only say one thing:
sometimes a baby just has to cry.
