Abstract:
The first article, The Physician as Educator (1904), discusses the misconception parents and educators hold regarding child-rearing practices. Both believe they must continually try to mold a child according to their perceived ideal. Alfred Adler discusses the futility of such a notion and emphasizes that parents and educators can only develop or hamper children's natural tendencies, or better yet, direct them toward cultural goals. Adler feels that only the educator or physician, who has overcome his/her own shortcomings will be capable of developing the child's potential and reveal the healing power in the patient. The second article, The Sexual Problem in Child Rearing (1905), points to the importance of using children's sexual awakening for educational purposes. He warns of the dangers of sexual precocity and perversity caused by faulty upbringing, but states that sexual perversity can be cured through love.
