There have been many books written in the last decade concerning the building of character and the control of the child's behavior in the home. Only through frank dealing with children can parents hope to retain their respect and confidence. Parents must be willing to admit their mistakes to the child and to regard their children with a scientific and sympathetic attitude. This book has been written for the purpose of teaching parents how to aid the child in making personal and social adjustments and emphasizes especially the building of confidence—of the parent in the child and of the children in their elders. The incidents related are typical and make the book interesting and practical. Perusal of the material should aid parents in overcoming and preventing many bad habits and behavior problems in their children.
