Launch of our latest book in Barcelona | October 2018

On Wednesday, October 10 at 7 pm at the IESE Business School in Barcelona, Home Renaissance Foundation launched its latest book ‘The Home: Multidisciplinary Reflections’ edited by Professor Emeritus Antonio Argandoña, who opened the event with a presentation entitled: ‘Home is also a company.’

This was followed by a round table moderated by the Research Director of the International Centre for Work and Family, Professor Mireia Las Heras, which debated if the home can be managed as a company and if the work that the home requires can or must be considered a profession.

This round table was made up of:

– Remei Agulles, Professor at the International University of Catalonia

– Rosa Pich, influencer, Youtuber and mother

– Javier Vidal-Quadras, lawyer and member of the International Foundation for Family Development

Here you are some of the reflections that they made:

Remei Agulles: “Today’s postmodern society means that when we start making a home, there are no fixed patterns. Before, people learnt by being there, but these days that doesn’t happen so we need professionals to “train” us and not just tell us how it should be done.”

Rosa Pich: “Something that has to be clear from the start in any home is that there are rules and boundaries – just like at school, marriages or university. Loving people includes making demands on them, saying no, and each family member needs to learn that.”

Javier Vidal Quadras: “Nobody gets married in order to split up afterwards, and nobody has children in order to make them unhappy, but it happens. Why? Ask yourself that question. Training and education are two good allies.”
