Herbert  Renz-Polster -  Understanding Children


Raising children: an evolutionary perspective

Children's development follows programming that originated in humankind's earliest days. For thousands of years this has ensured that our little ones developed in the right ways and reached maturity equipped with the tools to cope with life. Nowadays, parents are often concerned by their children’s behaviour and feel guilty about not doing a good enough job.

However, the latest evolutionary research presents the theory that children develop the way they do because it was once necessary for their survival. Their behaviour was strength, not weakness. If children from centuries ago had indiscriminately eaten any green leaves they happened to come across, they wouldn't have survived for very long. It is hardly surprising, then, that even today children view vegetables with scepticism. Once you understand the "meaning" behind children's behaviour you will be able to support their development in a more relaxed manner.
