New Studies in Education: Comparative Psychology and Hygiene of the Over-Weight Child


by Kathryn MeHale Hale - 1927

WHILE the under-weight child has been studied for many years, the study of the over-weight child has been approached only recently.1 This dissertation represents an endeavor to see by experimental analysis if the psychology and hygiene of the over-weight child differs from that of normal-weight and under-weight children, and if our negligence of the question as a problem is justifiable.
