Summary
"The point of view presented in this book is comprehensive, modern, integrated, and functional. The primary emphasis is psychological, though much has been drawn from literature dealing with the physiological, social, historical, and philosophical aspects of child development. The mental and the physical development of the child is, we believe, both dynamic and purposeful. Any material, either old or new, that emphasizes this point of view is included in the discussions. The plan is to present the problems of child psychology and to describe the methods employed in the scientific study of children. First, last, and always, the normal child is regarded as an integrated, growing personality. Physical, motor, dynamic, language, emotional, mental, intellectual, social, moral, religious, aesthetic, and play aspects of wholesome personality development are traced. Suggestions are made for intelligent guidance of child development. An account of the scope and the forms of personality maladjustments is presented, and a discussion of their prevention by a proper mental hygiene program is set forth. Who are exceptional and deviating children, and what can parents and teachers do for them?--these questions are considered and answered. Since many new discoveries have been made in the fields of how children develop and how wholesome and socially desirable growth may best be directed, this topic is reviewed afresh. The work of psychoeducational and of guidance clinics is described. The place of progressive education in promoting child guidance is also discussed. Throughout the book the reader is encouraged to substitute the scientific evaluation of child development for dogmatic, unfounded opinion. The final chapter is devoted to evaluation and integration of the whole discussion. In the appendix there is a useful study outline. The table of contents will also show that the book has a definite unity of plan and at the same time a wide variety of contributions. This method of organization leaves no important aspect of child psychology unmentioned; and yet each contributor, guided by this general outline, was able to avoid duplication. A careful survey of the literature of child psychology, as well as the experience of the contributors, justifies this organization. The writers constantly kept in mind the following persons who are intimately concerned with problems of child development and education: parents; students of education; members of administrative staffs in schools, institutions, and hospitals dealing with children; and those public spirited citizens who might like to keep abreast of developments in this field. More especially the purpose has been to prepare a convenient, useful text for normal schools, teachers colleges, schools of education, and college departments of education. Ample materials, discussion questions, and further references have been included to enable the instructor to adapt the book to the needs of his own students in accord with his own outline or syllabus"--Preface.
