"I've tried everything" competition

Is rational parenting that we are trying to promote on this site close to positive parenting? Of course!
Isabelle Filliozat known from the loud guide "In the heart of a child's emotions" shows in a simple, yet fun way that the easiest way to increase satisfaction with the time spent with the child is to understand him and his own needs.
For this you need peace, knowledge and acceptance of emotions: adults and children. Relying only on what we feel or what the adult mind tells us will only generate frustration. The straight path leads through reconciliation of the two most important elements that guide our lives: feelings and reason.

How to do it?

Educational errors cannot be avoided, just as natural limitations cannot be easily overcome. Especially those that result from a different perspective, world views, approaches to reality.

The problem of many trends indicating how to raise a child results from the fact that they are based on the conviction that the child is a miniature of an adult. Meanwhile this is not true. Charging a child too much responsibility and not placing clear boundaries always end badly: for the whole family. Like the fear of negative emotions of the child, misunderstanding of the natural changes occurring in his life at individual stages, demanding too much from the toddler.

Each stage has different challenges

  • Isabelle Filliozat draws attention to the differences between children at different stages of life.
  • He writes about why after a whole day in a nursery or kindergarten the child is cranky despite the fact that, according to the guardians, there was no "slightest problem" with him before
  • When a child has a strong need to organize reality, watch over the queue, the chosen place, the order of putting on individual clothing or toys: and what that means.
  • Why often a two-year-old needs less food than a one-year-old child and what frequency of meals is best.
  • Why is it better to say "stop" than "no"
  • Which makes a four-year-old lie.

The author's considerations are presented in plain language. Although they are accompanied by information about biological changes that affect children's behavior in specific situations and at specific stages of life, arguments are understandable and go to the imagination.

Isabelle Filliozat does not avoid difficult topics. I write about it, why punishments based on fear work only for a moment. He also takes a glove, commenting that children are more unbearable today than they were several years ago. Explains what they are caused by frequent bouts of hysteria and why children are so loud. He does all this in the company of simple illustrations (scenes), which additionally discuss the content of individual chapters.

Is the book worth reading? Yes. It is worth treating it as a collection of basic advice and first aid in educational problems. It works as an impulse to introduce changes in the life of the whole family.

Premiere of the book on May 23, 2013.
