Logic and compassion were Post's central tenets, and nowhere is that more evident than in this work covering the etiquette of good parenting. Depending on the situation, she makes the case for both latitude and resolve, while never forgetting that children dislike being talked down to. Chapters include: Everyday Manners at Home, The Stepchild and the Adopted Child, Children Who are Never Told "No", Holiday Manners, The Effect of Clothes on Manners, and The Spirit of Sportsmanship.
