Addendum to the Review of Erna Furman's Book, Helping Young Children Grow: "I Never Knew Parents Did So Much": Madison, CT: International Universities Press, Inc., 1987. 427 pp.

Review by:
Allan Jong

In my review (see Vol. 59, 1990, pp. 315-317), I quoted from Mrs. Furman's book as follows:

"Nudity is natural. I think children should see their parents in the nude from the start because then they will not think of it as sexual" (p. 325). "Are the aggressive urges really innate or are they a response to frustration?" (p. 281).

In the interest of clarity, let me emphasize that this quotation consisted of a statement and a question posed to Mrs. Furman by students, and certainly did not reflect Mrs. Furman's views. She indicated in her book that exposure of children to parental nudity, although a complex matter, can be detrimental and that aggressive urges are both innate and stirred by frustration, views with which psychoanalysts in general would agree.
