This menu contains questions that I have been asked by parents. My experiences are based on many encounters with mothers and fathers who, in one way or another, feel troubled. I will not provide any specific set of advice or tools. Neither will I refer to scientific publications. It is rather my experience as a psychoanalyst working as a consultant at a child health centre that is the foundation. Most of all, I am eager to inspire you to use my texts as a springboard for you to go on thinking – either on your own or with your partner.

No promises of quick-fix then! No hands-on recommendations on how-to-do-it either. I hope my observations and reflections will get your own thinking moving further. When you’re stressed and your child “refuses to fall asleep” or is “constantly defiant”, then it can be quite difficult to think about these things.
