Abstract [en]

In this experience-based essay, I give examples of events that take place during a typical day at preschool. By highlighting these everyday events, I discuss around the parental role and its importance for children and child development. I apply a historical review when it comes to views on children and child rearing, and reflect on different approaches that we have towards the children. In the discussion, I reflect on the Childs need for boundaries, and thereby try to understand why we act differently in this respect. To gain more knowledge and understanding of the events I have taken help from theories in literature and from my own practical knowledge. In this essay, I wish to highlight the question whether the children really have the necessary conditions and maturity for all the choices they may face during a typical day at home and at preschool. I also describe the dilemma of how teachers relate ethically and morally right in the daily meeting we have with children and their parents.
