Keeping Kids Out of Trouble
This isn’t too bad. Although dated, the advice is decent. Age appropriate responsibilities are outlined in an easy manner to follow. There is a casual attitude about corporal punishment that would flag anyone’s attention these days. In 1979, that wouldn’t have even been on anyone’s radar as a problem. Of course, this is also written to an audience of privileged parents and kids. There is an assumption that time and funds for good parenting are available. Of course this book is a weeder.
As I was googling around about the author, I realized that he is the author of the Peter Pan Syndrome. If you are of a certain age, you probably read this book or at least heard about it. Kiley passed away in 1996.
