"Conversing with children is a unique art with rules and meanings of its own. Children are rarely naive in their communications. Their messages are often in a code, that requires deciphering.

Andy, age ten, asked his father, 'What is the number of abandoned children in Harlem?'

Father a chemist and an intellectual, was glad to see his son take an interest in social problems. He gave a long lecture on the subject and then looked up the figure. But Andy was not satisfied and kept on asking questions on the same subject: 'What is the number of abandoned children in New York city?' 'in the United States?' 'in Europe?' 'in the world?'

Finally it occurred to father that his son was concerned, not about a social problem, but by a personal one. His questions stemmed not so much from sympathy for abandoned children as from fear of being abandoned. He was looking, not for a figure representing the number of deserted children, but for reassurance that he would not be deserted...." - Chapter One from Between Parent And Child
