Susanna Wesley had a strong influence over her many children. On several occasions her husband was absent. Susanna made sure that she spent time separately with of her children each day, taking care of their spiritual and moral development. It is appropriate that she has been called the mother of Methodism, because of her undoubted positive spiritual influence, in particular, on her sons John and Charles.
