Das Kompetente Kind (The Competent Child)

£12.99

Product description

From Amazon UK: courtesy of Google Translate
In the search for new values for raising children and a modern family, one thing has become clear: from the beginning, children have their own personality and are therefore human and socially competent partners to their parents. This competence, which expresses itself according to the child's maturity, does not have to be taught to children through education. They have to be allowed to observe and experiment, then they fit into the culture through imitation. This is how children cooperate, and adults have to learn to translate disruptive behaviour into messages. Because education is a development process - for parents as well as for children.

Originally written in Danish as Dit kompetente barn: traslated into German by Sigrid Engeler

Oxfam Shop Ulverston

Ulverston is a traditional market town that attempts to retain a sense of the Dickensian times as typified by the festival run in November. We are a conventional Oxfam shop and sell anything and everything that will be of interest to someone. We have a good reputation as a second hand bookseller and are developing a reputable clothing offer. Our friendly staff are always ready and willing to assist and we are continually on the lookout for more potential recruits. We have a strong focus on Fair Trade and like to run events to spread Oxfam's message and raise extra funds.
