To communicate with the child. How?
Preface to the 6th edition
This book reproduces the text of previous editions without any changes. However, it is much more drawings, to the same color. Usually the illustrations help you better understand what is signified by the words. They awaken interest and is better remembered. As it turned out, many parents read this book with the children, and pictures are very helpful in their joint discussions and analyses of cases. I hope in this new form the book will appeal to readers of all ages.
I am deeply grateful to the artists Valerie Khmara and the Pauline Egorushkina, creatively embodied in the drawings of many interesting and difficult moments of communication between children and adults.

Penalties come in many forms: verbal, physical, punishment labour, deprivation of attention and love, deprivation of certain goods.
Verbal — are often a protective reaction of the parent act on the child. Insults and threats just voiced their resentment deceived parental expectations. What parent gets in the end? The child is angry, or closed, not sure of himself, there is no mutual understanding Continue reading
Sex education of the younger generation — a matter of great public importance. The growth of scientific, economic and cultural achievements in the country and enriched the spiritual world of our youth.
It is believed that if the child learns and behaves approximately, sexual development he proceeds normally. This is a fallacy.
