This new edition of the book contains questions for parents and teachers on the subject of each chapter. Acclaimed originally when first published in 1992, this book is essential reading for parents and teachers on how to assist children's all-round development. The emphasis is on character building, approached from the viewpoint of moral habits: Professor Isaacs takes twenty-four virtues and discusses how the child can be obedient, industrious, sincere, prudent, generous, optimistic, sociable and so on.
There is no book on child development quite like this one!
