Finding a Space in the Group
Parents are of course central for many of these developments. For some tasks, however, children need more than their parents: they also need other children to look up to and learn from. A manageable group of like-minded children with whom they belong, with whom they can match themselves. Children challenge each other in different ways than we do as adults. This is important and the way it should be.
With another child, your child has a negotiator for its cause who is just as tough as it is itself. Among children, your child is not „the“ child, but one among others, and it will need to find and define its place within the group, creatively and freely negotiating the rules.
