Freud's influence
Read the text below and find the five mistakes in it.

Freud's theory changed the relationship between parents and friends. The fact that the child sees the mother as a rival and the idea of infantile sexuality emphasised the importance of early development. Consequently, parenthood regained a central status in society and, partly thanks to the Suffragettes, the conventional models of the relationship between men and women were questioned. The Freudian concept of 'free will' and the analysis of dreams helped investigate the human mind in a new way, which influenced contemporary readers.
