The book aims to stimulate a “movement for the liberation of children”, which is supposed to destroy old patterns and create opportunities for a completely new way of communication between people. It is a guide that aims to help adults become aware of their own ingrained patterns of behavior and thinking when interacting with their children.
A child has genuine freedom. He is joyful, playful and naturally creative. But when he grows up, the child is sacrificed to the gods of “action” and good behavior to such an extent that only nostalgia for childhood remains.
Osho says, “Childhood experiences haunt most people throughout their lives. They want them again—that innocence, that wonder, that beauty.” And each generation of adults can swear—with the best of intentions—that they will not repeat the mistakes of the past, but inevitably find themselves in the position of imposing their inherited limitations on future generations.
Make your child happy and free
This book aims to stimulate a “child liberation movement” that is supposed to destroy old patterns and create opportunities for a completely new way of communication between people.
It is a guide that aims to help adults become aware of their own ingrained patterns of behavior and thinking when interacting with their children. With this awareness, they can learn when to protect and support the child, and when to withdraw, so that he can flourish and use his full potential and be as joyful as possible.
Intelligent, sensitive and creative people are always “haunted” by the image of the paradise they knew as a child, but today it is only a faint memory. Of course, the adult body is no longer the body of a child, but consciousness can be pure, just like a child’s consciousness. This book helps you become a child again; innocent, untainted by any knowledge. Such a child knows nothing, yet is aware of everything around him.
Few people allow their child to dance, sing, scream and jump. Because something can break if he runs outside, he can get his clothes wet in the rain. Because of these little things, the mighty spiritual quality called playfulness is completely destroyed. Everyone praises an obedient child, but condemns a playful one. A child’s playfulness may be completely harmless, but it is condemned because there is a possibility of resistance.
Excerpt from the book:
“If you’re a parent, you need a lot of courage not to interfere in your child’s life. Open the door so that the child can go into the unknown and explore. He doesn’t know what’s inside him; nobody knows that. He has to grope in the dark. Don’t instill in him the fear of the dark, don’t be afraid of defeat, don’t be afraid of the unknown. Support him. When he embarks on a journey into the unknown, accompany him and be his complete support. Give him all your love.”
