How To Bring Up A Child
By Sri Aurobindo & The Mother (Sri Aurobindo Ashram Publication Department)

Can there be a more pressing question for the parents who are genuinely concerned about the right upbringing of their children? Perhaps not. But how many of them, even those who are most serious and sincere, truly understand the deeper needs of a child and know how to bring him or her up, giving the right direction in life?

The Mother said, To love to learn is the most precious gift that one can give to a child: to love to learn always and everywhere, so that all circumstances, all happenings in life may be constantly renewed opportunities for learning more and always more.

This book answers some very fundamental questions, mostly from the works of the Mother, on a child's needs and demands and also provides helpful practical suggestions to the guardians of the future on the very important but still obscure field of child education. Aptly illustrated, this book is a significant contribution to the growing literature on child psychology and can act as a handbook for parents, guardians and teachers, not as a collection of rules but as a torch to light the way.
