Abstract: In recent years since the development of new interest in the young child, much has been written advising parents about their techniques with their children. However, relatively little material has been available concerning what parents actually do, where they obtain their ideas, and what they need and desire to assist them in personality development in their children and in developing effective guidance techniques. The preschool child spends a great deal of his time at home; his home and parents are almost his entire world. Because of this new interest in the young child and the importance now placed on the development of the child during the early years, parents are realizing their place in the child's life and the influences they exert on their children. Thus, parents are looking for ways to learn more about the motivations of the young child and to provide him with wholesome opportunities for all-around growth.
