Some of the advice here seems sensible and useful. It seems like a good idea to relax about parenting, to carry children with you when you can, to let children be around adults and with older children. On the other hand, I found her descriptions of the 'torture' that Western parenting puts children through melodramatic and unnecessary. The reinforcement of gender stereotypes and claims that homosexuality, addiction, and criminality were all caused by bad parenting did not endear this book to me either.

This is a very interesting read. It will impact how I raise my child (though many of the concepts are a true challenge in a Metro-NY family where both parents must work and daycare is a necessity. Glad I read it before the birth of my first newborn.

Wow - a really interesting book. I was first introduced to this book on ParentsDigest and needed to read more. The author's experiences and ideas challenge the 'advancements' in child rearing that have been touted by modern western society. Well worth reading.

Every literate person should read this book. It will help you understand humanity, your culture, and your own story in life. I can't recommend it highly enough. Just read it.
