Abstract:

"This book, like The Boy and His Gang, springs directly from personal experiences in the Lyman School for Boys, the Industrial School of Massachusetts for delinquent boys. Under the efficient leadership of Superintendent T.F. Chapin, this school has been made over from one of the old military type to a free school where boys, through learning to do by doing, are given a chance to obtain a practical common-sense education. I should not forget our band of twenty-five boys. In this band the boys received such thorough training in music that several of them went directly from the school to good paying positions. It is evident without discussion that such an industrial school offers an almost ideal field for vocational training and guidance, and the spirit of nearly all the masters, matrons, and teachers was to get the right kind of boy into the right place. As principal of the school, the responsibility for the discipline of the boys fell upon my shoulders. In the first six months of experience I discovered that the easiest and best way to discipline a boy was to get him into the work he liked. I therefore made a careful study of the family history, the talents, experience, and ambition of each boy, with the idea of right guidance. After three years' work in the Lyman School and three years' study in Clark University, I acted for three summers as a substitute probation officer of the Boston Juvenile Court. Here again was reenforced the fact that success in handling a difficult boy depends largely upon getting him into the work he likes. These experiences gave me a large and interesting acquaintance with unfortunate boys, many of whom when in trouble--and not infrequently a perplexed parent--came to my home in Needham, twelve miles out of Boston, to find out what to do. As the direct result of these visits the office for vocational guidance was opened in Boston. In the last eight years lecture work has taken me into every section of this country, and I have purposely so planned my trips as to spend practically one half the time in consultation with experts and in the investigation of industrial and occupational conditions in cities and in the country. This book is the outgrowth of all these experiences"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved).
