‘To keep children clean is something that should never be attempted. It cannot be done.’

’The mere provision of the vegetable is not sufficient; it must be actually eaten.’

’If there is room enough for somersaults, the child can be satisfied.’

Many books of advice for new parents were published during the 1920s and 30s, influenced by the growth of developmental psychology and aimed at the aspirant middle classes who were taking a more hands-on role in the raising of their offspring. This compendium brings together nuggets from the best of these titles in one handy volume. Chapters include good – and bad – behaviour, meals and mealtimes, dress and deportment, children’s parties and playtime and storytelling, with sections on the all-important saying `No!’ and good bedtime habits.

Illustrated with charming contemporary line drawings, this little book is full of no-nonsense, old-fashioned parenting advice: a gem of a guide for anyone new to the hardest job in the world.
