Synopsis:

For empathetic childrearing

This book is a manifesto in defense of the little ones. A philosophical essay that proposes a more respectful upbringing for children and focuses on empathy, listening, tenderness, and companionship.

For the author, today’s parents want to do everything so well that they forget to think of who childhood is all about: the children.

In this book, with the author’s characteristic humor and warmth, Miguel López shares his vision of parenting as a father and an educator who has spent many hours in classrooms and schoolyards while addressing issues such as extracurricular activities, fear of boredom, backpacks, screens, the labels we put on children, sexist toys, death, helicopter mothers, and the violent language we use with young people. 

Parenting is not about creating super children for the future. It is not about making children competitive in the world of work, who knows the most languages, or who has the most skills in robotics and ballet. It is about raising calm, confident, and happy people.

Renowned author Miguel López presents Listen to Them!, his first book for adults, in defense of an upbringing based on empathy, listening, tenderness, and companionship.
