John Lockes, des berühmten englischen Philosophen (1632–1704) »Gedanken über Erziehung« erschienen im Jahre 1693 anonym unter dem Titel: »Some thoughts concerning education«. Das Buch ist nicht streng systematisch angelegt, es macht vielmehr oft den Eindruck unzusammenhängender Einfälle und ist nicht frei von Wiederholungen. Und doch liegt in der Anordnung der Gedanken eine Absicht. Die leibliche und sittliche Erziehung beanspruchen den größten Teil des Werkes, ganz zuletzt wird von den zu erwerbenden Kenntnissen gesprochen. Zum ersten Male in der pädagogischen Literatur wird eben in den »Erziehungsgedanken« die Erziehung des Zöglings in den Mittelpunkt gestellt. Als erster fordert Locke, wie schon Herbart in seiner feinen Charakteristik des »schlichten Mannes«, dem er Selbständigkeit und Tiefe nachrühmt, bemerkt, »daß man den Erfolg eines Erziehers nicht nach der Summe der Kenntnisse, sondern nach der gewonnenen persönlichen Bildung des Zöglings schätzen solle«. Die Serie "Meisterwerke der Literatur" beinhaltet die Klassiker der deutschen und weltweiten Literatur in einer einzigartigen Sammlung. Lesen Sie die besten Werke großer Schriftsteller,Poeten, Autoren und Philosophen auf Ihrem elektronischen Lesegerät. Dieses Werk bietet zusätzlich * Eine Biografie/Bibliografie des Autors.
Darryl Bodkin has written a wonderful treatise on child development and leadership. He writes from a child’s perspective on parenting and provides invaluable insight on the subject of leadership growth and development. When I was 11 years of age, my life was torn apart by the loss of my father in a tragic construction accident. It was a defining moment for me. Fortunately, my godly grandmother sat down with me and told me that I had to be the leader in our home since I was the oldest child. From that moment leadership was thrust upon me. Reading this book has caused me to reflect on that landmark day in my own childhood when I started on a leadership journey. I commend Darryl Bodkin’s book to you for your enjoyment and personal growth. I believe every parent who reads it will benefit from the lessons taught on parenting and will gain an understanding of how to encourage the development of leadership qualities in children. Proverbs 3:5–6 is a sterling reminder of the potential for vital Christian leadership within every child that is born into God’s big world. Dr. Stan A.

Tracie Peterson Begins Compelling New Series Set on the 1840s Frontier Grace Martindale has known more than her share of hardship. After her parents died, raising her two younger sisters became her responsibility. A hasty marriage to a minister who is heading to the untamed West seemed like an opportunity for a fresh start, but a cholera outbreak along the wagon trail has left Grace a widow in a very precarious position. Having learned natural remedies and midwifery from her mother, Grace seeks an opportunity to use her skills for the benefit of others. So when she and her sisters arrive at the Whitman mission in "Oregon Country," she decides to stay rather than push on. With the help of Alex Armistead, a French-American fur trapper, Grace begins to provide care for her neighbors, including some of the native populace. But not everyone welcomes her skills--or her presence--and soon Grace finds herself and those she loves in more danger than she imagined possible.
