Download Piccoli tiranni (non) crescono. Manuale di educazione per i by Aldo Naouri,T. Caggiano,A. Crea PDF

By Aldo Naouri,T. Caggiano,A. Crea

Siamo sicuri che essere troppo permissivi e condiscendenti con i bambini piccoli sia los angeles strada giusta da seguire? Aldo Naouri sostiene che oggi, in realtà, questo approccio educativo stia arrecando alle nuove generazioni più danni che benefici. I bambini crescono prepotenti e tirannici ma anche fragili, incapaci di affrontare le difficoltà della vita cui rispondono con comportamenti violenti e autodistruttivi. Educare un figlio significa offrirgli una guida, amorevole e numerous. Significa capirne le inclinazioni, non assecondarne i capricci. Insomma, i genitori devono imparare a dire di no, e a riprendersi il ruolo, spesso scomodo ma indispensabile, di educatori. Piccoli tiranni (non) crescono offre a padri e madri una guida teorico-pratica in cui aneddoti e riflessioni si alternano a consigli tratti dalla quotidianità, dal rapporto con il cibo al rispetto degli altri, dall’asilo nido ai primi distacchi dal bambino.
