QUESTIONS PARENTS ASK by James Lee Ellenwood


Email this review


A commentator on parents and (or versus) children, Ellenwood who has been advising one generation on the handling of another for years as a relaxed and reliable guide, here contributes a few parental fiats and interdicts on anything from the daily snaris of family living to the ultimate objectives of upbringing. Discipline (the best possible, self-discipline); decisions, and at what age children can make them; why children can make them; why children want to leave home- when can they date and how late; schools, vocational guidance, sex education, down to problems of clothes, religion, quarreling, chores, allowances, rough language, smoking, drinking- and for some reason sleepwalking, all enter the arena of arbitration here... Nothing newfangled certainly, but bringing up children in (and on) familiar, friendly terms.
