In an age where well-behaved children almost seem like a historic relic, child-training is needed more than ever. But the question remains, what exactly should they be taught? Obedience? Honesty? Spirituality? Work ethics? Manners?
The answer is yes and much more. Author Josephine Cunnington Edwards gives hope to the myth that children cannot change. Children can be taught. As the educational system grows and improves, home must be the place where so-called "old-fashion" virtues are taught along with a traditional education not just for the children, but because our entire way of life hangs on it.
Josephine Cunnington Edwards is a woman of much versatility. She has been a missionary to Africa and has written some twenty-three books in such areas as missions, history, children, and the home. She has collaborated on three TV shows, and in addition, found time to collect dolls, dishes, Siamese cats, and to do oil painting and to travel. Her home is in Dayton, Tennessee.

Both my wife and I felt it was well written with excellent points made by the author. We used it as a gift for our daughter and would recommend it as valuable for any parent, attempting to raise their Children for the Lord. Sherman Leach
