The lectures of the famous British child psychiatrist and psychoanalyst addressed to pediatricians, internists, obstetricians, nurses, and, of course, parents. For parents and expectant moms and dads – this book is immensely important because it relieves the unfounded anxiety and instills confidence. It describes and analyzes motherhood as it is, without horror and embellishment. For example, the feeling of total absorption in newborn, bordering on extinction of self, depression and irritation, fear of being “a bad mother”, the strange behavior of the child.

The lifestyle of the parents, must shape the lives of the youngest members of the family.
To three years a child develops rapidly, absorbing like a sponge all that he sees around. From three to seven years, he must be “slave” . that is, be in complete obedience.

1. Good or bad parenting – it can be reliably judged by can the child say, “I happy !”
