We say certain children that they are delicate, backward, peculiar, odd, stunted, puny, and the like, without being able exactly to state what disease they are suffering from. The development of a given child receives a shock from a fall or fright; or its further growth is arrested by some acute disease, such as measles or influenza; or child is glum, taciturn, excitable, or what not, and yet people hardly know what is wrong and how to set about putting the wrong right. Again, some children do not see, hear, or speak properly; or they are unclean in their habit, wet their clothes or their beds, and cannot be taught nice, sweet ways like their fellow.
This little work is intended to show that such abnormatities depend upon physical conditions that can be put right by properly chosen remedies, and in no other way so well. Learn More
