The article discusses the topic, psychology of the family, discussed at a meeting of the social psychology group of the Sociological Society. The psychology of the family is of great importance because the family constitutes the earliest human environment. The intimate nature of the family relationships is exceptionally apt to bring about severe intra-psychical conflicts, especially conflicts between opposing and incompatible tendencies of love and hate. With reference to the practical application of psychological knowledge concerning the family, this knowledge would seem to indicate the desirability of a gradual spiritual weaning of the child from his parents. In their relations to their children, parents should avoid excessive manifestations of love, undue causes of jealousy, undue leniency or spoiling, or undue assertion of authority. The weaning process on the part of the children requires a corresponding readjustment of the parents' attitude and interests as their children grow up.
