    we all develop our own pet theories about children ,based on our own instincts and prejudices.we call these commonsensical or informal theories because they are based on our own personal experiences.when you think about it ,this is not a very reliable guide to follow.this information comes from two main sources:
    1. from our own experiences of childhood,and from our observation of other people.
    this information may be biased in many ways .more than likely these voices inside us come from our own parents.unfortunately their approach may not be the best one for us in our particular situation.
