THE CHILD IS THE EXPERT
IN OTHER WORDS:
How Benevolent Despots Can Live With
The Idea that in Many Ways
Their Child is the Expert on
How They Should Be Raised
In this conclusion of a two-part micro-series,
we have once again the true expert voice of
Robert E. Kay, MD, author and child psychiatrist.
First, we ask Dr. Kay to break down that
outrageous (to a disciplinarian) title. Then we
ontinue in a Q & A format:
What about the often agonizing decision about
whether to raise the child at home or let the
child be raised in day care, or ... ?
How do you raise a kid this way without letting
them be predisposed to teen pregnancy and
violence on the streets?
How does it happen that parents feel like their
kids don't listen to them? How do they get
obedience? Is adolescent rebellion inevitable?
Since you work in the community health field,
you see the effects on kids of various things.
What do you see?
How should parents deal with television and
computers? (And video games, and ...)
Where can parents and other interested people
find out more about this and similar approaches
to raising children?
Dr. Kay has nothing to sell or promote. All he
wants to do here is make a difference in the
quality of your adult-child relationships.
