Abstract/Description: "Here is a guide for the parents of the Zephyrhills school area. Under one cover, and with concise discussion, it presents the information which parents need to know in order to get a complete view of the young child. Admittedly, it is a broad subject which has been covered by many well known authorities. Nevertheless, in over two decades of teaching the young child, and in dealing with the parents of these children for that same period, the writer has observed that too few parents read the many helpful volumes which are easily available. Many parents shun books weighted with details and written in terminology largely beyond the range of ready comprehension of the average parent. Pamphlets and bulletins which briefly cover the high spots are much more widely read. After having surveyed much authoritative literature in this field, and having taken from it the important aspects, the writer believes that her brief paper of the child as a whole, meets this definite need for parental guidance in her local situation. This guide differs from the average pamphlet or bulletin which usually deals only in parts, in that it presents an overall condensation of the continuous growth of the child from conception to adulthood. It is intended that this guide be placed on the local Parent Teacher Association's shelf in the school library for free reading, and that it be made available in local study courses for parents of preschool children. It is hoped that by using this parental guide as an introductory source, a better understanding of the child as a whole will be developed and that more effective rearing of children will result"--Introduction.
