The Soul of Your Child By Heinrich Lhotzky. Translated by Anna Bar well. New York: Dodd, Mead and Company, 1924.

Review by:
Mary O'Malley

In this little volume of 163 pages the author sets forth his theory of education, taking as his keynote the two words obedience and freedom. This is not a scientific work, but rather a word of practical and kindly advice offered to parents, and especially to mothers, in the training of children and the development of their characters. In pleasant conversational style the author describes what the state of mind of the expectant mother should be, and when the child has come what her attitude should be to the new being that has been entrusted to her care. Informally and with numerous examples taken from everyday life, he discusses the momentous problem of motherhood. As to the number of children in the family, Professor Lhotzky believes that there should be at least three, and, in general, advises large families as more conducive to the normal development of the children; for the “only child,” in his opinion, is decidedly handicapped.
