What moms and dads make mistakes in parenting– we all know it, and perhaps even normal, especially for young, inexperienced parents…
Often standing at the cash register in the store, we see the same picture: cries and tantrums of a child who wants so he bought some sweetness. And they, by the way, as luck would have it exhibited at the checkout. In our article we have sought the experience of German psychologists who talk about the errors made by the parents in the upbringing of children.
How to raise a child
German child psychologist Wolfgang Bergmann explains the problem of education of children with deep insecurities of parents: “Modern parents are more indecisive in matters of education than it did a generation ago. They know a lot, but, as it turns out, I don’t know anything…”

Older children and parents participate in the education of their younger brothers and sisters. Still, the birth rate dropped significantly, families are all later.

So I want to warn you, I do not insist that the age difference is about 2 years old so perfect that all other choices are bad by definition. I’m sure the difference is big, also has its advantages.

However, I like a man who consciously and deliberately sought to have a second child within 2 years after the first, and not disappointed in my decision, I want to share my thoughts.
