The Education Of Children
The Education of Children
2011 Reprint of 1930 English edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. Along with Freud and James, Alfred Adler was a pioneer in the field of individual psychiatry. The materials contained in this volume were written over sixty years ago but remain equally valid today. Though aware of some of the terms he coined, e.g., "inferiority complex," "compensation," and "overcompensation," most teachers and parents are completely unaware of Adler and his remarkable insights into one of the world's most crucial mandates. This book presents some of Adler's most powerful insights on numerous aspects relating to the education of children, including the development of personality; the relationship between the inferiority complex and striving for superiority; preventing the inferiority complex; obstacles to social development; the child's position in the family; the child at school; adolescence and sex education; and educating the parent.
