"The Continuum Concept" introduces the idea that in order to achieve optimal physical, mental and emotional development, human beings - especially babies - require the kind of instinctive nurturing as practiced by our ancient relatives. It is a true 'back to basics' approach to parenting. Author Jean Liedloff spent two and-a-half years in the jungle deep in the heart of South America living with indigenous tribes and was astounded at how differently children are raised outside the Western world. She came to the realisation that essential child-rearing techniques such as touch, trust and community have been undermined in modern times, and in this book suggests practical ways to regain our natural well-being, for our children and ourselves.

Table of Contents

5 of 5 Stars! '

It's a great book! First I had read it Hungarian then I bought it in English and gave it to my husband. He loved it too.
The most shocking part starts on the page 89.

A very interesting read. It opens up a new perspective on our culture and lifestyle, with some confronting ideas.

 

4 of 5 Stars! '

What a refreshing read. This book focuses on a natural parenting style known as attachment parenting. While I don't follow a lot of the practices of AP, I really liked the authors approach and observations of these group of people. A lot of the practices are probably not practical in a modern world, but it is lovely to incorporate some of the things discussed in this book.
