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

  So Good!
HappyHomemaker of Oregon, 9/26/2011
It took me a while of reading it to realize that it was written a hundred years ago, because all the wisdom that he offers is so applicable to this day and age! The chapters are short enough to read in one sitting, but so full of insight that they can be read over and over again.
This one is on my bi-annual reading list!
  An Old Gem That's Still Worth While Read
Albanyaloe of South Africa, 6/10/2011
I wish I'd found this book earlier. Yes, the language is old and a little difficult, but I found that part of the appeal. Each chapter had some gem in it. I would say it is not so much a book full of "how to discipline" but rather a book filled with the reasons for training, and principles behind and in training children. It often brought my attention to the qualities of a child which I tend to forget. Good advice, very different from all the modern advice of lenience. I hope this book never gets considered "out of date".
