This 1905 manual on child-raising expounds to mothers the wisdom of the age; charts are included with precise amounts of fluids to be given to week-old children to prevent drunkenness in later life, and parents are exhorted not to provide money for chores done, lest they strive to gain possession of their parent's estate when they are old. Interspersed are age-old proverbs and practical advice, all with the end goal of raising up strong Christian children of character. Based on principles practiced at the Haskell Home-Training School, this guide to raising a successful family focuses on the whole child, discussing obedience, self-control of mind and body, truthfulness, helpful activities for children, and much more. Recommended by Elisabeth Elliot. 368 pages, softcover. 368 pages, softcover.
