The purpose of this study is to search for, and suggest probable preventive measures by which a child may make his normal adjustments. If the child has grown without a chance to make these adjustments because of some unfortunate circumstance, it then becomes the responsibility of the citizens to assist the child in taking his rightful place into society by guidance in desirable channels.

The aim of this treatise is to investigate and find probable preventive measures or cures for maladjustment that frustrates individuals. The writer attempts to point out the fact that if a child's development is begun in the pre-natal stage, and continued through adolescence, he is likely to become a desirable citizen. On the contrary, if he is not guided, delinquency is likely to enter into the behavior pattern.

Emotional development is discussed more fully than physical or mental development. Social development is very closely associated with emotional development. Emotional needs are basic, and around them all others are built.
