Summary note
"The city child of city parents, attuned to and happy in patterns of city living, can have as rich and full a childhood as his counterpart in suburb or country. His childhood will be different, certainly, but it need not be less satisfying. To assure this within a complicated city structure, however, his parents may need to be more conscientiously aware of his needs, alive to the city's opportunities, and alert to its dangers. The purpose of this book will be to present certain ideas and points of view on varied aspects of child care and guidance, specifically pertinent to city living. Some of the material included is based on articles published in The New York Times"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2013 APA, all rights reserved).
