This chapter focuses on how and where Josephine raised Philippa. Josephine based the way she disciplined her child on the ideas of John Broadus Watson, founder of a school of psychology called behaviourism. His advice was to treat children as young adults, never hug and kiss them, and let the parents' behaviour always be objective and firm. Dr. Watson discounted heredity and instinct as important factors in a child's development, and Josephine, though having difficulty with some of these ways of parenting, continued to accept the thesis. George and Josephine began to treat their daughter, from a very early age, as an intellectual equal and when they talked Philippa always listened attentively. Philippa was still under observation of NYU School of Education thus still depriving her with normal life.
