This is a compendium of advice to parents about rearing children in their first 10 years of life. The authors' long training and experience is well reflected in the objectivity of their evaluations and the clarity of their discussions. The principal themes are the processes of human growth and development, considered not in terms of oversimplified Freudian "libidinal phases" but as progressive maturations continuously modifiable by directed experience. Many a harried parent's questions will be answered by the volume without vagueness or dogmatism. The book is enhanced in usefulness by a full index and is recommended as a reliable source of information and guidance in its field.
