It is believed that the subject of offering advice, guidance and in general, counselling on being a parent in modern times has not really been addressed. With this in mind, this book is written in a simple language. Although in plain enough English, the content will still be of importance to the reader and without any compromising on the training of the parents.

Nothing is more pitiful than to see a grown man or woman dominated by a mother who refuses to realise that the son or daughter is a child no longer and must assume his or her place of responsibility in the world. [...]

[...] He must not discuss with his most intimate friend any undesirable feature of the matter. Because the father's character, life style and consciousness, registers upon the subconscious mind of the mother and therefore on the mind of the unborn child. The father should guard carefully the physical well-being of the mother, seeing that she does not overwork, that she has good, wholesome food and gets sufficient exercise in the open air. He wants a fine, strong, active child, so he will throw all of his influence on the side of the mother during pregnancy, in an effort to encourage her and help her to keep alive her interest in things outside her own home.
