Author Mary Reed Newland draws on her own experiences as the mother of seven to show how the classic Christian principles of sanctity can be translated into terms easily applied to children–even to the very young. Because it’s rooted in experience, not in theory, nothing that Mrs. Newland suggests is impossible or extraordinary. In fact, as you reflect on your experiences with your own children, you’ll quickly agree that hers is an excellent commonsense approach to raising good Catholic children. First published fifty years ago, this book is a rare treat for today’s parents: a wise and readable book on child care that derives its wisdom from the Catholic home rather than from psychologists.
