KIRKUS REVIEW

A general manual for better parents, which is firm in its criticism of parental ignorance in child raising, which shows the means by which a democratic rather than a dictatorial method is possible. This carefully scrutinizes the way in which children feel, reasons why they misbehave, and the correction permissable through proper procedures. It emphasizes the use of natural consequences rather than punishments, it investigates the mistakes of anxious parents, and provides a guide for the treatment of normal, difficult and disturbed children. A book for careful study, for psychologists, teachers and parents.
