The "Parental Voice": How the Infant-Toddler (Zero to Three Years) Education System Should Deal with Parents
Plotnik, Ronit
Early Child Development and Care, v183 n12 p1943-1954 2013
Parenthood is a concrete experience that develops while having a psychological existence in its background. It is heard in two voices simultaneously: the overt, concrete one versus the covert, psychological one. It moves between four intersecting axes, which together create the "Parental Voice" model. Axis 1--Parenthood between fantasy and the concrete child, and in parallel with the child's development stages. These characteristics are the focus of what educators have to deal with when interacting with parents of young children. Axis 2--Parenthood between the "intergenerational transference" mechanism and adjustment to the current reality in which the parent and child are growing. Axis 3--"Whose child is it?" -ecological and systemic aspects: struggles and congruencies between the educational system and the family. Axis 4--Parenthood as a psychological existence that develops between the three structures of Self (Private Self, Professional Self and Parental Self).
