Authors:

Edith A. Davis and Esther McGinnis

Parent Education

A significant and helpful symposium of the ideas of recognized authorities as to the application of science for the improvement of parental methods in child development.

Journal of Home Economics

Parent Education was first published in 1927. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions.

This volume, containing papers read before the Northwest Conference on Child Health and Parent Education in 1927, includes a foreword by Lotus D. Coffman, President of the University of Minnesota. Parents who realize that “instinct” is insufficient equipment for fulfilling their responsibilities toward their children, and all others interested in the welfare of children will fund much valuable assistance in this collection of twenty-two papers.

The contributors include such nationally known experts as: Henry F. Helmholz, Mayo Clinic; George Draper, Columbia University; Lydia J. Roberts, University of Chicago; Bird T. Baldwin, University of Iowa; Smiley Blanton, Vassar College; and Max Seham, Richard E. Scammon, and John E. Anderson, of the University of Minnesota.
