The author discusses in a clear, concise manner fears, tantrums, habits, freedom, play, independence, sex, education and the various problems with which one is daily confronted in the rearing of children. Having been trained in psychoanalysis, she attacks many of the problems of childhood from the psychoanalytic point of view and she uses the experiences in the rearing of her own children as examples of proper management. While it is impossible to agree fully with the methods outlined and many of the statements, the book in general should be found useful. Those concerned with child management will find much that is of interest.
