“Children feel “by nature” at home in the world; world in itself ask them to get into it, by growing and taking part in it. Consequently, if children nowadays feel uneasy about it, they certainly don’t need “more mothers or more fathers”; on the contrary, they need less maternalism and less paternalism that restrain them from embracing the real world with trust and confidence.
