Taking Children Seriously (TCS) is a rational, non-coercive philosophy of parenting and learning which says:

The main goal of parenting is to help children learn.
Punishing doesn’t help with learning.
Reason helps everyone win.
Ignorance isn’t stupidity.
Children aren’t fragile.
Obedience and rules are bad.

a friend recently told me she was pregnant.
interesting to see Karl Popper invoked here, and also the bullet points
• Children aren't fragile.
• Authority can’t settle disagreements. You can listen to an expert if you want to, but don’t accept ideas you think are wrong.

The deeper I read, the more it became clearer Popper's influence on Nassim Taleb's thinking: the benefits of trial and error/tinkering, the "expert problem"
