“Underlying stages of childhood” comprises unpublished articles and interviews of the famous psychoanalyst Françoise Dolto.
We must treat the child in the family as a guest of honour, says Dolto, always is important what we are saying to him. Every spoken or unspoken word is not harmless for child's development. The language, literal, builds his character. Words have the power to build, destroy, depress or cure the human being. These are the basic discoveries of Psychoanalysis, used in a remarkable manner in Pediatrics, Pedagogy and in the art to communicate with children.
