This may be the only child training book you will ever need! You will discover, as thousands of other parents have, the valuable insights written a hundred years ago by Henry Clay Trumbull. He shares very frankly from his lifetime experiences with teaching children and raising eight of his own. These are working principles, written with warmth, love, and wisdom, not untried theories. This book has been called "the best single volume on the subject of child training ever written" and is a refreshing change from today's psychological approach to discipline.
MY REASON FOR WRITING THIS BOOK
As a youth, my ernest desire was to pursue the medical field and I pursued this option with confidence. My overall thinking was that I was destined to be a Psychologist and nothing would stand in my way. I always felt that my purpose in this life was to help others in whichever way I could, however, as I matured, I realized that my own hidden pain had become a burden too heavy to carry. My soul was searching and I wandered aimlessly, hoping for some source of comfort - a ray of hope - anything that would ease my pain. I excelled in almost every area I pursued; I tried to convince myself that hurt went away when one can find ways to block its entry. I was wrong. Books had become my strength over time; words had nestled into my subconscious and had become my healing emollient. They were my constant companion. Eventually I resorted to the only remedy I could find and that was self expression. I found comfort by expressing my feelings on paper. These thoughts engineered into greater thoughts - finally becoming a dream that maybe one day I would write for others to read and their lives may be inspired and touched by my experiences. A fellow writer said to me quite recently and I find this exceedingly profound, 'maybe I had to endure this pain so that others in this life may benefit from my suffering'. I wonder!
I give precedence to the Great God whom I serve for without his guidance and direction I would not have foreseen this vision. My thanks to all who read and are inspired.
The testimony of expert witnesses to inform courtroom decisions is critical if intelligent and just verdicts are to be reached. Few judges, jurors or lay witnesses possess the necessary knowledge to adequately understand the complexities of human behaviour as they relate to acts of interpersonal violence. While lay witnesses can testify to actual incidents or observations, it is the expert witness who can provide forensic significance to such evidence. This volume clearly defines the need for and role of expert witnesses in litigation. The author demystifies the process, and provides practical guidance on preparing and presenting expert testimony. In so doing, he will assist courts to more accurately assess and weigh evidence, and come to appropriate and informed decisions.
