The three women tell the children that they have to leave them now and that they will no longer contact them. As they leave, they give them gifts: Calvin the gift of communicating with others, Meg the gift of her faults, and Charles Wallace the gift of his childhood. As a last gift, Mrs. Who gives Meg her spectacles and tells her to only use them as a last resort. They tell Charles Wallace that things will be especially dangerous for him, that they should never separate and that he should not think that he knows everything.
