  • child psychology in general -

    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 reliable guide to follow.this information comes from two main sources;
    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.woman,in particular,may feel guilty that they are not as efficient as their own mothers were.however ,not every woman is maternal in this sense and so a conflict may be built up in a person .

    Thanks for posting this.

    It doesn't really clarify the answer to the question, does it? Probably the best answer is emotion. But I've been wrong before about your answers.
