Summary "The Midcentury White House Conference on Children and Youth bases its concern for children on the primacy of spiritual values, democratic practice, and the dignity and worth of every individual. Accordingly, the purpose of the Conference shall be to consider how we can develop in children the mental, emotional, and spiritual qualities essential to individual happiness and to responsible citizenship, and what physical, economic, and social conditions are deemed necessary to this development. To do this the Conference shall: (a) bring together in usable form pertinent knowledge related to the development of children and indicate areas in which further knowledge is needed; (b) examine the environment in which children are growing up, with a view to determining its influence upon them; (c) study the ways in which the home, the school, the church, the law, health and welfare agencies, and other social institutions, individually and cooperatively, are serving the needs of children; (d) formulate, through cooperative efforts of laymen and specialists, proposals for the improvement of parental, environmental, and institutional influences on children; (e) suggest means whereby these proposals may be communicated to the people and put into action"--Book.
