NICHT VON SCHLECHTEN ELTERN accompanies three families with babies and small toddlers whose bonds are exposed to grueling tests of endurance: traumatic birth experiences, inconsolable incessantly crying babies, sleep-wake rhythms that refuse to settle down. While the parents are able to put their affliction into words, the little ones’ ways of expressing are harder to decode. In therapy processes, the families try to find a common language and fathom those fears that plague them.
