Formation of Character
By Rev. Ernest R. Hull, S.J. Impr, 1921.
This book should be placed in the hands of very young married couple very early in their married life, and carefully read by them in preparation for the serious duties of parenthood on which they are entering, and for which they will one day have to render a grace account. None the less ought to be ‘chewed and digested’ by those who have the responsibilities of intellectual and moral parenthood– I mean the teachers of our boys and girls, in whose case the in loco parentis is no mere legal fiction. Most fairly educated readers will, I think, follow without much difficulty the author’s very clear and simple exposition of psychological facts connected with the development of children; whilst for educationalist, the subject ought to be familiar enough in these of pedagogy, ‘method’ and ‘child-study.’
