In this landmark book, David Issacs, an educationalist and parent, offers ideas and suggestions on how parents can help chidren's all-round development. The emphasis is on character building, approached from the viewpoint of moral habits: Professor Issacs takes 24 virtues and discusses how the child -at different ages- can be encouraged to be obedient, industrious, sincere, prudent, generous, optimistic, sociable, and so on. There is no book on child development quite like this. Includes appendices on "Character building in schools" and "Short descriptions of virtues."
