Children should learn to understand their social environment and be able to orientate themselves better within this in able to overcome predjudice, anxiety and inhibitions as a part of their class and group work in nursery and primary schools.
They should learn to become more perceptive to behavioral roles in human relationships and therefore develop the ability to grasp and understand these in a better way.
The aim is also to teach the children to identify their own needs and to be able to present these to others more clearly and to set limits within which they can move. At the same time, they must learn to respect the needs and limits of others.
'The Hedgehog File' encourages children to become more independant and to play an active role part in their environment and it strengthens their self-confidence.
