Publisher Comments:

To keep children clean is something that should never be attempted. It cannot be done.

and#160;

The mere provision of the vegetable is not sufficient; it must be actually eaten.

and#160;

If there is room enough for somersaults, the child can be satisfied.

and#160;

These are just a few of the words of wisdom on offer in How to be a Good Parent, the latest in a series of delightful advice books from the Bodleian Library that also includes How to be a Good Husband and How to be a Good Wife. As developmental psychology began to show promise, beleaguered parents were drawn to the nascent discipline with the sorts of questions that will be familiar to any parent: How does one tell a toddler andldquo;noandrdquo; without triggering a tantrum? Are there circumstances in which itandrsquo;s acceptable to extract good behavior with bribery?

and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;and#160;

How to be a Good Parent brings together bits from the best of advice books of the 1920s and andrsquo;30s, taking readers through all the challenges involved in raising a child. Among the topics discussed are goodandmdash;and badandmdash;behavior, how to dress oneandrsquo;s dear son or darling daughter, mealtime, and the dreaded morning and bedtime routines. A section on taking medicine offers sage advice: andldquo;Gargling is a useful accomplishmentandrdquo; (while perhaps not appropriate for the dinner table). In a section on playtime, parents tasked with planning their childandrsquo;s birthday will warmly welcome the bookandrsquo;s advice to andldquo;let the children give their own parties!andrdquo;

By turns humorously old-fashioned and timeless, How to be a Good Parent is a charmingly illustrated guide to what any parent can tell you is the worldand#39;s most difficult job.

Synopsis:

"Your courage, Your cheerfulness, Your resolution, Will bring us victory." (Wartime Poster)

"Let us Go Forward Together!" (Winston Churchill)

As the bombs began to fall in September 1940, as homes were flattened and people emerged from cramped shelters and sleepless nights into barely recognisable streets, something very British happened - the Blitz Spirit was born. Amazingly the terrors of bombing inspired the best in ordinary people, without whose pluck, patriotism and humor the war could never have been won. This book collects the best examples of the Blitz Spirit which - with Churchill's inspiration - got Britain through its darkest hour. Compiled by Jaqueline Mitchell into a fun and flippable format, the witty voices and colorful images in this book show the best of the British character and are an inspiration for whenever times are hard. "Never surrender!"
