This reprint is an interesting summary useful perhaps for the pediatrician, which explains the attitudes and interests of children, particularly babies, toward feeding problems, weaning, thumb sucking, nail biting, constipation, enuresis, anxiety, temper tantrums, discipline, training and spoiling, masturbation, fears, phobias and night terrors and similar subjects. The matters are dealt with briefly from sound common sense to the scientific point of view.
