Some Notes for the Guidance of Parents
by Fr. Daniel Lord

Take it from Mother Prioress Marie-Johanna of the traditional Teaching Dominicans (Post Falls, Idaho) who reviewed this book for Angelus Press:

I enjoyed it thoroughly. The principles of education and human nature, etc., and the consequent necessary measures and directions to take are clearly outlined, and excellent. I even laughed out loud, sometimes, as the author describes society, reactions, and situations for instance "contempt for motherhood" on p.15 with great perception and humanness. I certainly will recommend the book to parents. Thank you for bringing it to my attention.
