" À tout âge, se sentir compris est une expérience intensément positive. C'est ainsi que se développe la conscience de… soi du jeune enfant. Les problèmes du quotidien (sommeil, pleurs, angoisses, colères...) sont avant tout l'expression d'une émotion que l'enfant n'arrive pas à réguler, écrit le Dr Claudia M. Gold, pédiatre à Boston. Lorsque l'adulte est à son écoute avec empathie, saisit son point de vue sans se laisser envahir par sa détresse, il l'aide à comprendre ce qu'il est en train de vivre. L'enfant acquiert alors peu à peu la capacité à gérer ses sentiments au lieu de se laisser déborder, à tolérer la frustration, et à contrôler ses impulsions. En s'appuyant sur la psychologie du développement, la théorie de l'attachement, les neurosciences et la génétique, l'auteur montre que si l'enfant rencontre une véritable écoute, les situations qui semblaient bloquées peuvent enfin se dénouer. " -- 4e de couv. Titre uniforme: Keeping your child in mind.
