Overview

This vintage book contains a comprehensive treatise on the place of children in culture and society, it consists of an investigation into the guidance and development of infants at home, and in the nursery. Completed in the midst of a war and at a time when the philosophy of child care was being reconsidered and reformed, this text incorporates discussions of ideas that would later become the foundations of modern child care methodology. This text will appeal to those with an interest in the evolution of child care in modern societies, and is one not to be missed by collectors of literature of this ilk. The chapters of this book include: 'The Family in A Democratic Culture', 'How the Mind Grows', 'Personality and Acculturation', 'Infants are Individuals', 'Self-Regulation and Cultural Guidance', 'The Cycle of Child Development', 'Before the Baby is Born', 'A Good Start', et cetera.
