Mistakes Parents Make

-How To Avoid Them

Being a good parent is the biggest job on earth. Upon how we train our children depends their entire future success and happi

ness.

Yet what training have most of us had in this all-important work? Instead of using scientific methods in our contact with the most delicate mechanism in the world-a child's mindwe often use methods that do irreparable injury.

What chance would a fine Swiss watch have if, knowing nothing about watchmaking, we tried to adjust it with a hatchet and a crowbar?

As absurd as that may seem, thousands of loving parents with their whole beings wrapped up in their children's welfare are using methods fully as unsuited-fully as dangerous and harmful.

For a child's mind needs far more intelligent care than the most delicate watch ever made. And very often the method we use to correct one bad habit is the very cause of other bad habits which can easily wreck the entire life of the child.

Where We Go Wrong

This child is leaving his play to do an errand; he has been
taught obedience and goes immediately and willingly

No Help Until Now

Until now parents have had to grope around as best they could. They have had to depend on self devised methods. It is a wonderful commentary on the intelligence

any age without display

to instruct children in the
delicate matters of sex?
to always obtain cheerful
obedience?

to correct mistakes of
early training?

courtesy? Vulgarity?

of the average parent that they have done as well
as they have.

But now, for the first time, there is constructive
help at hand. A great organization, the Parents
Association, an international society with members
in all parts of the world, has been formed to guide
parents in the upbringing of their children.

The principle upon which this association was founded is that in dealing with children confidence is the basis of control.

Professor Ray C. Beery, A.B., M.A. (Harvard and Columbia), the founder of the Association, after years of exhaustive research and practical experience, has created a complete Course in Child Training, endorsed by leading educators everywhere, which is available to members of the Association.

The method used by Professor Beery in his Course in Child Training is essentially the same as that now used in teaching the law, except, of course, that it is condensed and remarkably easy to apply. Instead of devoting pages to a theoretical discussion of the various traits and habits which are to be

cured, Professor Beery shows in each instance exactly how some other parent in the same situation has applied his methods to secure results.

For instance, suppose your child is aged four, and is afraid of the dark. All you have to do is look up this trait in the index for children of that age and then turn to the proper page. Here you will find in detail an example of how some other parent cured a child of this fear through Professor Beery's methods. No other teacher of child training has ever attempted to handle the subject in such a practical, easy to apply way. It means that in addition to a constructive, thoroughly organized system of child training, you have the daily help you need to overcome all undesirable characteristics as they develop. Personal Service

This course is unlike anything that has ever gone before. Instead of dealing in generalities, it is intensely definite and practical, and tells the parent exactly what to do in each individual case to produce immediate and permanent results. It is meant for the modern busy parent of children from the cradle to 18 years of age.

The "Case" Method

In addition to the complete Course in Child Training, by Professor Beery, members of the Parents Association enjoy many other equally worthwhile benefits such as the privilege of personal consultation through the mail with Professor Beery on any particularly vexing child training problem, exchange of experiences of other members through the Association's Bulletin which is issued regularly; free Purchase Service, which enables you to buy children's books at publisher's prices, advice as to schools, camps, etc. But we have not the space here to give the whole wonderful story.

Free Book Explains All

New Methods in Child Training" is the title of a 24-page illustrated booklet which describes the work of the Association and explains Professor Beery's remarkable Course in Child Training. It also contains letters from members outlining the astonishingly satisfactory results they have secured through these New Methods. A copy of this book will be sent at once to any interested parent who merely writes a letter or postcard; or, mail the coupon below. It is suggested that you write at once, as the Association is making a special offer to new members which will undoubtedly be withdrawn shortly. Send today-no obligation. Parents Association, Dept 15-B, 449 Fourth Ave., New York City.
