For many centuries, and until recently, under the upbringing of children was understood to be a kind of special relationship with children. It has developed from the belief that children are very different from us adults. Such attitude to children is humiliating. And the process of understanding that children are people too, requires a large amount of time.
"Slowly, hesitantly, reluctantly, for centuries, we move to understanding the apparently obvious truth: the child is an independent person. Not our continuation. Not an appendage to us. Not an alien with whom it is necessary to build obscure for earthly life relationship. But — people. Which must communicate exactly how we communicate with other people."
"I would like this book to be of interest to both children and adults ... Of course, it takes some courage to be read along with your child. Be prepared - your child might indicate your own parenting mistakes." Andrey Maksimov
