Col bambino essere di parola

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Be with the child

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


[Autom. eng. transl.] "Being of word" with children: do not betray them, do not fail in the given word. But the expression is equivocal and wants to allude to the child as it is himself "being of the word", formed by the words of the adults. The body of the child taken from these words but also from the unspoken words, which somehow do trauma. An "presence" of the adult is then "of word", inasmuch as - beyond keeping the promise - it sustains the fundamental importance of being there, of being there, being in the experience that is being produced with the child, be in a certain place in the bond, in the speech.
