KIRKUS REVIEW

A great teacher has been belpin thousands through his constructive newspaper columns addressed to parents and teachers the country over. Letters from his readers gave the impetus to this little book, which may well reach many who will not read the deeper outting, more authoritative books on the same subject (see Baruch, page 466; Wolf, page 563;). He discusses family morale, specific problems rising out of the war, problems of hate and fear and insecurity. He advises letting children talk out and their fears; he advises more latitude about unimportant breaks of discipline, while at the same time greater responsibility is engendered. He urges making the children share in decisions about where to cut the family budget, where to divide housework,etc. A special section addressed to teachers charges them with their part in the picture of national morale -- first things first. Sound commonsense, a humanitarian point of view, realistic and sufficiently idealistic.
