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!"

    " The parenting and care of our precious children is of utmost importance and something we should intentionally revisit and carefully consider from time to time..  After I read this book, I asked my wife to read it and see what she thought about it. Well, she was blown away and humbled by the insightful and practical wisdom found in the parenting principles H.C. Trumbull emphasizes and explains in his book. Some of the things he presents contradict and correct many of the parenting practices many of us take for granted today. I don't think it is an overstatement to say that this book will not only be a great encouragement to you but also revolutionize your parenting understandings and practices. "
