KIRKUS REVIEW

This will conflict with Dorothy Baruch's You, Your Children and War (Appleton-Century -- Page 466) to some extent, though the focus is more definitely on child psychology and less on parent education, thus cutting less deeply into the problems involved. The assumption here seems to be that -- given the blueprint, the parent can follow it. Children can face it with a calm, secure home; discipline must be maintained; children should be given ways to participate and help. The author discusses the merit and drawbacks of evacuation, and the lessons to be derived from the English experience. Finally, stress is putting on teaching democracy -- not hatred. Solid sense, from an authority on child guidance, a member of the staff of Child Study Association.
