Abstract:

"Parents in these days are often caught between distaste for Victorian strictness and mistrust of the licence which sometimes seems to be encouraged by psychologists. They no longer know when to say 'Yes' and when to say 'No' to their children. In this new book the author of Dreams and Nightmares draws on a long clinical experience to describe, in simple terms, a child's natural equipment, the theory of maturation, the phases of early development, the organization of personality, and the period of adolescence. There cannot be any easy rules for rearing children and only such knowledge, therefore, can help intelligent and sympathetic parents in their dilemma. As the author shows here, in an atmosphere of love there need be no conflict between discipline and freedom. Moreover, parents who are prepared to promote a child's mental health--in other words, the full development of its whole personality--are setting it on the right path to be successful, moral in outlook, possessed of a strong will, and as intelligent as its nature allows"--Cover.
