Abstract:

"In the thirteen years since this book was first printed real progress has been made in the details of the sciences related to the development and training of children but its general outlines and principles had not been greatly modified. This book is an attempt to present, in an organized form, an outline of the new science of child study for investigators, students, teachers, and parents. It is the fruit of fourteen years' experience in studying and teaching child study, and of seven years' experience as a father. Most of the work has been presented successfully, in nearly its present form, to normal students. Prominence is given to the foundations of child study in other sciences, and to the more general, permanent, and practical truths thus far revealed by students of children. The treatment of each topic is, in a way, complete in itself, though related to every other and intended to be worked out more completely by reading, observation, experiment, and discussion. It is hoped that the plan of the book will adapt itself to the use of intelligent parents and to classes in normal schools and universities, with varying preparation and amount of time to devote to the subject." -- Preface, and preface to the third edition.
