I read Trumbull's Hints and it really touched my heart. No book has ever changed my attitude towards my children as much as this one. — Susanna Cleveland, home school mother
Each of these short chapters amazed us with its depth of practical insights. Why the Bible says we must train our children's wills, not break them. Why scolding is always wrong—and what to do instead. How to train your child to be courteous, to deny himself, and not to pester. How to choose proper amusements and companions. How to nourish your child's faith. How to get willing obedience and respect from your children. This book will give you a whole new perspective on your joy as a parent—and a whole lot more hope! Every family needs this book!
— Bill and Mary Pride, home school authors
"Ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it," advised the prophet Jeremiah. Fortunately, there are many young parents in our own day, home schoolers among them, who are asking. And, when they discover Hints on Child Training by H. Clay Trumbull, they are onto something very good. What Trumbull calls "hints" are, in fact, precious jewels in our day, more precious because they are so rare. I have been greatly helped by this wonderful book. — Gregg Harris, home school advocate
