A book for parents to understand themselves, before trying to learn how to raise their children: a revealing closer look at one’s arid emotional realities   This book is about what makes up the characters that forge our identities and how the more we have been emotionally neglected, the more we take refuge in those inner characters. It gives us tools to avoid imposing a deceived discourse on our children, in order to raise them freely. Gutman explains the ravaging effects of sexual repression, how words can heal, what the maternal discourse doesn’t say, the search for oneself and invisibility as a refuge. The retrospective work that each individual has the opportunity to undertake deserves a long and laborious journey. It is arduous and different in each case. This is a book about how to decode the maternal discourse.
