Constructing the Self [electronic resource]

France télévisions distribution
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
This program studies how children continue to transform between the ages of 4 and 11 as they confront and come to terms with fear, adversity, death, and their nascent sexuality. Much attention is paid to the latency period, the intermediate age when boys and girls suddenly stop playing together, crave alone-time, and often clash with their parents. Child psychiatrists, psychologists, and counselors discuss the value of saying no and how establishing limits helps a child deal with adulthood's parameters.
