Notre appel pour l'éducation parentale universelle

No votes yet

De Eve Sullivan avec Jamesa Wagwau et Aya Isumi, 12 décembre 2016: Quand de jeunes enfants crient leur détresse, bien qu'il soit facile de dire qu'ils ont besoin de quelque chose, les parents ou les tuteurs peuvent ne pas reconnaître tout de suite de quel réconfort ou satisfaction l'enfant a besoin. Les enfants en âge d’aller à l’école font aussi connaître leurs besoins, habituellement avec des mots, bien que parfois ils le fassent en se plaignant ou en faisant des scènes. Les adolescents malheureux projettent leur détresse sur eux-mêmes: l’automutilation et la toxicomanie sont leurs cris silencieux. Des jeunes désespérés, même des enfants de dix ans, selon le U.S. National Runaway Safeline, se sentent comme au bord du précipice et quittent leur maison.

Our call for universal parenting education

By Eve Sullivan, Jamesa Wagwau, and Aya Isumi, December 12 2016 - Small children cry out in distress and, while it is easy to tell that they need something, parents or caregivers may not recognize right away what solace or satisfaction the child needs. School-age children make their needs known too, usually with words, although sometimes by whining or acting up. Unhappy teenagers take their distress out on themselves: self-injury and substance abuse are their silent cries. Desperate young people, even children as young as ten, according to the U.S. National Runaway Safeline, feel pushed to the brink and leave their homes.

Author: Eve Sullivan of the Parents Forum, December 3 2015 - Because our instinct to put children first is strong, we often ignore our own needs as parents. Even the Sustainable Development Goals, several of which* relate to family, do not mention parents or parenting. When will policymakers, practitioners - when will we all - recognize parenting and family life education as our collective blind spot?

Authors: Sophia Luthuli and Eve Sullivan, October 15 2015 - A distance of 7,853 miles and a six-hour time difference separate Johannesburg from Boston. Flying time from one city to the other is 18 hours and 25 minutes. Nonetheless, by internet the two of us are in touch within moments and have been in regular contact for the past two years.
