This was a fascinating read The author relates the parenting practices of different cultures around the world and talks about how certain parenting styles are due to the biology of human babies As a simple example babies were designed to be breastfed biologically speaking But in Western cultures we ve decided to diverge from those biologically based practices to gain convenience and independence from the traditionally intimate parent infant relationship I like how the author says that there s nothing wrong with that as long as we re aware of the trade offs of choosing that different path Babies will continue to be just fine as long as they re not completely neglected But for me the book reaffirmed certain parenting choices we ve already madeThis book does an excellent job of giving you a full picture of each parenting choice so that you can make an informed decision The book was a little slow going for me at first but once I got to the chapter comparing cultures it really picked up and was very interesting Family Album A Collection of Poetry just fine as long as they re not completely neglected But for me the book reaffirmed certain parenting choices we ve already madeThis book does an excellent The Yambo Ouologuem Reader The Duty of Violence A Black Ghostwriter's Letter to France and the Thousand and ONe Bibles of Sex job of giving you a full picture of each parenting choice so that you can make an informed decision The book was a little slow going for me at first but once I got to the chapter comparing cultures it really picked up and was very interesting
