„On the verge of chaos and order. About upbringing and education. Personally“ is an attempt to capture what is in the air in Estonian culture: where are we right now with our parental values and principles? How do we want to raise our children so they would become good, creative, strong people?
Ten interviews. Stories about childhood, becoming a parent and living with children. Interviews with outstanding Estonians.
