Editorial Review
"Don't suffer a child to be accused of a fault until you are perfectly aware he has been guilty of it" is one of the many recommendations imparted within this historical booklet. Covering timeless topics such as "Pregnancy and Childbirth," "Diet," "Sleep," and "Clothing," Don'ts for Mothers reveals motherhood as viewed in the late 1800s. While the majority of the guidance is outdated and strikingly odd to modern readers, this entertaining booklet still presents some insight into the world of motherhood today. Don'ts for Mother's is an excellent read for anyone interested in the evolution of society who loves to be humorously entertained. Also part of this series are Don'ts for Husbands and Don'ts for Wives, available from Cosimo Classics. Though the author of Don'ts for Mothers is anonymous, it is suspected the author was Blanche Ebbutt, 20th century author of two other etiquette guides written in the same vein and style, Don'ts for Wives and Don'ts for Husbands.
