This pamphlet is a collection of articles by a number of different authors, reprinted from various magazines. It is described in the introduction as a pamphlet addressed to parents and designed to offer "not a ready-made philosophy of sex and sex education, but rather suggestions and guidance to the mature parent in search of his own philosophy." Written as these articles are by experienced specialists, they contain many important suggestions but, unfortunately, are couched in terms that will limit their usefulness to individuals familiar with the thought trends and the terminology of modern psychology and education. For the great mass of parents they will not be of much help, because they are written in terms which only the specialist will be likely to find comprehensible.
