Following up from our discussion this morning, I am posting links to a couple of the articles I mentioned:
The book I mentioned was by Alison Gopnik and is called: The Gardener and the Carpenter: What the New Science of Child Development Tells Us About the Relationship Between Parents and Children
If you don’t feel like reading the whole book, there’s an article about it here:
Or you can listen to an interview with the author by Michael Enright on CBC here:
The other book that came up in discussion was The 5 Love Languages of Children by Gary D. Chapman and Ross Campbell.
