First published in America in 1847, but written in 1687 by the Archbiship Fenelon of Perigord, Gascony, The Education of a Daughter is a spirited how-to book for the parents of young children. It is filled with sound wisdom on the ample subject of rearing both daughters and sons. The Archbishop's writing is sprinkled with proverbs, hints and maxims, and his insights into the psychology of a young mind as well as his outline for the principles of education are invaluable. Though written more than three centuries ago, this book is still strikingly relevant in today's society, and the issues at the heart of the book are those at the top of the evening news: education, religion and family values. The Education of a Daughter is a constant reminder that good advice often gets better with age.
