Publisher's Summary

Fortified with common sense and Biblical wisdom, Trumbull's straightforward guide has established its place as a classic work in the field of child rearing. Written over 100 years ago, it is completely free of modernist influence. After all, Freud had not yet developed his theories of the subconscious; Pavlov and Skinner had not yet introduced to educators their animal-training techniques known as behaviorism; Dewey's Religious (i.e. Secular) Humanism had not overtaken the public schools; and Dr. Benjamin Spock had not published his dangerous book on child training.
Home schooling gurus Bill and Mary Pride write: "Each of these short chapters amazed us with its depth of practical insights: Why the Bible says we must train our children's will, not break them. Why scolding is always wrong-and what to do instead. How to train your child to be courteous, to deny himself, and not to pester. How to choose proper amusements and companions. How to nourish your child's faith. How to get willing obedience and respect from your children. This book will give you a whole new perspective on your joy as a parent-and a lot more hope!"

Wonderful

I recommend this book to anyone and everyone that at one time or another will have interaction with a child. Each stage of a child's development is significant and this book truly equips a person with the necessary tools for successfully investing and bringing up a child. The book does a wonderful job balancing training with individual freedom. I'd give this book 10 stars if possible.

Hidden 1890 Parenting Treasure!

Thankfully, I heard of this book during Elisabeth Elliot’s sermon.

She mentioned that her great-grandfather had written a wonderful book on parenting. And I’m so glad I found it.

This book is encouraging and convicting. In an age where parenting “experts” provide formulas that never seem to work, Trumbull’s book is full of wisdom for handling the many situations you will face as you raise little ones (such as words at bedtime, dealing with fear, etc).

Highly recommended!
