KIRKUS REVIEW

Based on some 4000 family interviews, and drawn from material in Today's Children- a syndicated column- this is commonsense counseling, using the words of many of the parents with whom they talked, and beamed at the average parent of the average child. Observing, knowing and accepting your offspring; discipline and punishment; routines and rules and regulations; responsibilities (early inculcated); play and play materials; emergencies and adjustments to new situations; clothes; friends; family participation; moral and spiritual values; and hardest to handle, - money and sex, all make up everyday points and problems which face most parents. The approach is as healthy as the happy homes which have substantiated the recommendations here, and while it is not candy-coated, it is simple and sanguine.
