LIFE WITH FAMILY by Jean Schick Grossman


Email this review


A backward look on twenty five years of parenthood, this is a discussion of average family situations and problems which combines interpretation and suggestion, offers general guidance. Here, among many considerations, are such recommendations as admitting your mistakes -- perfection is not a parental requisite; following your instincts rather than the book; what the child should determine and what the parent; the importance of friendly companionship with your children; the development of work attitudes; money problems; the working mother; recreation and relaxation; emotions and their expression, and so on. Based largely on her own experiences, as mother and worker in the field of child guidance, this is pleasantly discursive, flexible counseling.
