Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(5), 399–401. Reviews the book, Helping Parents Help Their Children edited by L. Eugene Arnold (1978). The objectives of this book are succinctly stated in the title; it is addressed to counselors of parents. In an excellent opening chapter, general principles of parental guidance are presented by the editor. The second section of this volume consists of a series of short chapters, each on a conceptual approach to parental guidance. The third section considers parents and children with specific problems: mentally and physically handicapped children, delinquent children, hyperactive children, and autistic and neurotic children. On the whole, each presentation is tight, most are clearly written, and many are insight provoking. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
