Before Landon Pearson became a Canadian senator, she had raised five children and lived with her husband Geoffrey Pearson in several countries where he worked in embassies. In Moscow he was Canada’s ambassador and, since her children were grown by then, Landon visited schools playgrounds, observing the childrearing practices, then wrote a book, Children of Glasnost: Growing up Soviet. What are the effects of this collectivity-oriented system on the political values of today’s Russian adults? She now directs an institute at Carleton University on the Rights of the Child.
