Educators, for a long time, have been advised to deal with "the whole child." If this term is interpreted as including in its meaning the child's physical deviations and their relationships to his personality, then these factors must be considered by all teachers in the education of the child. Educators may look to other fields of learning for assistance in meeting this problem. Menninger has forcefully described "the whole child": "it means the individual as a whole, his height and weight and loves and hates and blood-pressure and reflexes; his smiles and hopes and bowed legs and enlarged tonsils. It means all that anyone is and all that he is trying to become. This is the modern psychiatric meaning of the term 'personality'."
