The Moral Life of Children

The Moral Life of Children - Robert Coles I had difficulty immersing myself in this book, because of the author's unnecessary name-dropping. I understand, without context, to mention that the author met Anna Freud personally, since she founded the study of child psychology. However, I see no need to add, both in-text, and in a specific endnote, that the author's wife was friends with the author Flannery O'Connor.
