Psychology and child education

Must be put first

February 21st 2011
Teaching… That is the best job. Obviously, not everyone is of that opinion: a lawyer, an engineer, a doctor, a banker, yes, it is worth being any of those, whereas there is no prestige attached to caring for children. And yet, that job is actually the most important, the one carrying the heaviest consequences for the future of a country. Educating children, whether as a teacher, in primary or secondary schools, or as a parent – what a responsibility! It is divine work. This is why the day will come when psychology and child education, which are still undervalued, will have to be brought to the fore. And this day is coming. People are beginning to focus more and more on these matters: on the human being, on psychological life and on education. Study the history of humanity, and you will understand that the problems of society, of national and international life, will not be resolved as long as psychology and child education are not given priority.
