This broadcast and essay deals with the standards of parents and children and how they sometimes conflict. Winnicott holds that it must harm a child if a parent is so concerned with the establishment of her own rights in her own house that she fails to allow for the innate tendency of the infant and child to create a little world around himself that is his own affair and that has its own moral code.
