Comments The Mother at Home

  • Vivian

    What would you expect from a parenting book penned by a pastor born 200 years ago? If I hadn't read a rave review from someone who included a disclaimer that some of the discipline techniques touted in the preface would have put her off I too would have shut the book and gone no further. However, I found it to be filled with good principles and solid suggestions.Today's reader will have to do some mental editing to adjust the author's recommendations to what is now known about child development. [...]

    This book deals with getting your child to obey at the first command. It is heavily religious as it was a tract written in 1833, so it deals with why you want to discipline your child and that why is heavily steeped in Christianity--however I found it to be wonderful religious content because it was deep and not fluff. If you are not a Christian family this probably would not help you because its advice is not necessarily common sense (I'd suggest Rosemond's The Well-Disciplined Child for simila [...]

    This may be one of the ONLY times I ever give a 4 star ratings to a book that advocates physical punishments for children. Normally I would have tossed it aside or at the very least given it a much lower rating. Normally someone who subscribes to hitting children would automatically lose my respect and there would be no need to continue reading their wordsAnd initially, I was quite skeptical to see that a mothering book had been written by a man. What I found, though, is that this book inspired [...]

    Sometimes you just need a kick in the pants from 1833. This is the second time I've read this book, and it is still one my favorites about raising children. The language isn't hard to get through, though I admit I had to look up what an "andiron" was and why children would be so tempted to mess with them, much to a 1833 mother's dismay. Sobering, encouraging, and instructive. Thankful I finally own a copy.


  • Billi Richardson

    I throughly enjoyed the perspective of this book. It really caauses introspect on the consequences of being a bad parent. Or thinking you are being good and yet destroying your child in respect to his future in society. I take something new every time I read it. The historical parenting books are, in my opinion, so much "more" than the fluff you often find today.


  • Dan Gorman

    A historical curiosity, written in that florid 19th-century prose common to works of Christian ethics and popular literature of that period. It is interesting as a source document, but the parenting suggestions offered by this book will strike most modern American readers as child abuse and psychological manipulation.


  • Michelle Hensley

    What I learned from this book was the self-control while parenting is essential. If we as parents, do not have self-control, it will be more difficult to teach our children this character. Also, that consistency is vital. Keep your word, do not threaten and then not follow through. I thought this book was one of the best parenting books that a Christian mother can have in her collection.


  • Karen

    This parenting book was written in 1834. The prose style is, of course, often melodramatic and takes some getting used to. But the content is good, challenging, and many parents could stand to read this. He isn't harsh at all, which surprised me.
