This is more specialized, dealing as it does with special problems of the pre-school child, the ways and means of meeting them. Child training, cures for thumb sucking, bedwetting, other bad habits; setting up of good habits; establishing social adaptation. Designed for serious parents, who want to get at cause and variations. Although the emphasis is on the home, there is a good deal here for nursery school teachers. The authors advocate nursery school from two years on. Helen Hanford puts the age even younger. The assumption that these are problems most parents may have to meet is rather overwhelming, but viewed as individual problems, it is a common-sense handling of the various subjects.
