In this review, Winnicott explains that the title refers to the diagnosis and treatment of six kinds of child: the quick-thinking child, the slow-thinking child, the child whose brain has been injured, the child maladjusted emotionally, the child of unusual cultural background, and the child of unusual training. He believes that the author has used her 3,600 personal cases with good common sense but that she adds nothing new to the field of child psychoanalysis.
