Summary
"This is a book for parents who need help and advice in bringing up their children and who are puzzled by the obscure and often contradictory assertions of child psychologists. This book deals with the earliest problems - feeding, weaning, sleep, etc.; it then goes on to early discipline, first school difficulties and adolescence. The great individual differences in children, frequently in the same family, are stressed, so that parents will not be so ready to imagine behaviour to be abnormal. It also seeks to help parents to understand themselves in their attitude towards their children. As teachers, social and religious workers, children's welfare officers and nurses, are nowadays increasingly brought into touch with parents and discuss with them the upbringing of their children, it is hoped that this book will be of use to these groups as well as to parents themselves. Professor Valentine, after many years' teaching of psychology and previous school teaching experience, has provided a book specially suitable for students in training colleges and university education departments, for teachers, youth leaders, and all concerned with the training of children and adolescents. He has aimed especially at clarity, the provision of concrete illustrations and the stressing of material of general agreement among psychologists"--Jacket.
