Overview For deg skal alt bli bedre

To bring up a child is to relive your own childhood. Through the child’s eyes, you see and understand your own life anew. This is a book about how our past is with us when we become parents, interweaving itself into our relationship with our children in ways we are rarely aware of. The era, society and culture we live in instil us with ideas about how a child is meant to be, and the family we come from will always be the backdrop to the way we, ourselves, parent our children.

As a psychologist, Rogndal hears women and men alike speak of how important it was for them not to repeat their own childhood with their own children. Even so, some things often do repeat themselves without our reflecting upon it, or else we struggle so hard with our past that it expresses itself in ways we do not like and is passed on to our children. She writes as a mother and based on her background as a psychologist. She is relatively new to both roles, but as a psychologist, there is one thing at least she knows for sure: what makes therapists good is not erasing the impressions of the past but constantly reflecting on and adopting a stance on the way our experiences influence us in our encounters with other people.

Reviews For deg skal alt bli bedre

«En nydelig bok om hvordan vi bærer med oss vår egen fortid i møte med våre barn - på godt og vondt.»

«Rett og slett en fryd å lese!»

«Boken hjelper oss å se oss selv og vårt samspill med våre barn, fra utsiden. På denne måten blir det også lettere for oss å møte barna på deres egne premisser, og ut fra barnas behov - heller enn å utkjempe våre egne oppvekstkamper på ny.»

«Dette er en solid fagbok - full av kloke betraktninger og innsikter, presentert i et språk og en innpakning som overgår mange skjønnlitterære tekster om foreldre og barn. Boken taler nemlig like mye til hjertet som til hodet.»

Frode Thuen, A-magasinet: Leve Sammen
