    The Terror of Explicitness: Philosophical Remarks on the Idea of a Parenting Contract.Stefan Ramaekers & Bert Lambeir - 2007 - Ethics and Education 2 (2):95-107.
    The new idea of a 'parenting contract', explicitly taking as its point of reference the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, is meant primarily to protect children's rights, and specifically the right to a proper upbringing.

    It is taken for granted that the complexity of the information society requires a reorientation of our being in the world.

    Regret for What Not Has Been. Education, and From Now You're on Your Own.Bert Lambeir - 2004 - Studies in Philosophy and Education 23 (2/3):177-188.
    When children gradually leave theirparental home and the educational task of theirparents is nearly finished, the relationshipbetween them changes. The nature of the closerelationship comes under pressure, and thequestion is whether what is awaited for willnot be hollow. To think about the character andorigin of this emptiness, leads to a reflectionof the essence of the educational relationshipitself. This article discusses the way in which``leaving home'' puts the relationship betweenand the identities of parent and child atstake. It furthermore describes the kind (...)
