Man stands in his own shadow and wonders why it is dark.
The child, the family and the outside world by DW Winnicott
This book, better than any other I’ve read, describes what it’s like to be a small child. Since all of our stuff comes from our childhood, isn’t it a good idea to understand more about how we are now by understanding what happened then?
It’s all about how we process information and flatly believe that what we see is something even when it is clearly something else.
“Hannah Jones has refused the heart transplant that could save her life. But is a 13-year-old too young to make that decision? Or is she the only person who can?” How does this make you feel? Suppose you were Hannah’s parent? If 13, is old enough, when is not old enough?
Contributions always gratefully received.
If you have been, thank you for reading this
