THE PSYCHOLOGY OF CHILDHOOD.

THE PSYCHOLOGY OF CHILDHOOD. The book begins with a eulogy of G. Stanley Hall, the educator. In the succeeding chapters the preschool child, school problems, play, moral education, social education, personality, instincts, emotions, sex differences, adolescence, habits, nervousness, mental backwardness, language, imagination, psychoanalysis, intelligence and superior children are discussed. Everyday problems are dealt with. The relationship of the attitudes of parents to their children, with the resulting effects of the various attitudes on the mind of the child, is extensively discussed. As a college professor the author sees many personality difficulties which he analyzes and traces back to improper management in childhood. The author is conservative. Although he does not follow any one school of psychology, he presents the subject from the standpoint of the educator, which differs somewhat from that of the physician and psychiatrist. The book is interestingly written and safe for parents to read. It contains nothing new. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png American journal of diseases of children American Medical Association
