Lecture "I will give you to a strange aunt" - recording

In this lecture, I talk about the emotional manipulation of parents to get their children to obey.

We often hear phrases like:
"Don't go away, your uncle will take you!"
"I'll give you to a strange aunt!"
"That's it, I'm leaving, you're alone, atā - atā!"
"Ask the guard, he'll pick you up and put you in jail for crying and shouting like that!"

Threats of this kind and others are, of course, an effective means of securing obedience at a given moment. However, such methods come at a high price - your relationship with the child, trust, low self-esteem, etc.

During the lecture, I talk about how the child sees these situations, give examples of how to be more sensitive in similar situations and what we can do if we or an outsider has said such things to a child.
