As a rule we greatly exaggerate children’s interest in power struggles with us. We are so concerned about maintaining our power over them that we think they are equally concerned about taking it away from us. They are very much aware that they are powerless, that we have great power over them. They don’t like this, and in a vague way look forward to a time when it may not be true. But they are realistic enough to know that at the moment they are not going to be able to do much to change this.
