KIRKUS REVIEW

A few humble and homemade suggestions"" continues the gentle indoctrination of both parents and children of It Runs In the Family, There's No Place Like Home, etc. And here, in the friction between the generations (""Youth never gives age a vacation, and age never gives youth a rest""), Ellenwood is the intermediary interpreter on what are our objectives, as parents, and what are our means and methods (words often fail); on the energy and curiosity of youth, and the obstinacy and conservatism of age; on the larger questions of schools, and homes, and the lesser incidentals of clothes and report cards and the crazy conventions of the young which only meet up with the misapprehension of their elders but by no means betters.... Non- authoritarian advice which is pleasant in tone, emollient in character.
