A sane and practical book which every mother bitten with the bug of modern child psychology would find reassuring and enlightening. For here is no scare head about abnormality, but rather the assurance that deviation from the so-called normal is normal, and that home conditions and family conditions should be accepted as a matter of course, and individual problems dealt with in relation to the average setting. One gets a sense of the tendencies of children at different ages, their ability to remember, their tendency to confuse anticipated events with actual happenings, and so on. Handling of emergency situations is better attained through common sense than through rules. Original approach to cut and dried subjects, such as Training and Talent. Where Do Bables Come From? Memory and Habits, Punishment and Reward, and so on. Humor and sanity characterize the book throughout. Sell to club groups, parent teacher organizations, and so on. Emphasis on children under seven.
