Item Description...
The child psychologist whose book Your Baby & Child has provided indispensable advice to a new generation of parents now offers a groundbreaking book which suggests that even the best parenting may not be enough in a society that is hostile to children. Leach shows how our laws, employment polices, and culture end up depriving children of their parents.
"A Book Full Of Wisdom and challenge, written by one of the world's leading nurturers of parents. Dr. Leach is deeply concerned about the inadequate support and parenting children are getting in our present marketplace society. She challenges all of us to put families and children first, and she suggests innovative ways that not only society but individual parents can bring about change in our priorities. A wonderful book!"

-- T. Berry Brazelton, M.D.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
She's the best  Jul 9, 2007
Penelope Leach is the most sensible, pragmatic and intelligent of child care "experts," with empathies that are clearly with the child in this argument that the developed world must make it easier for families to put their children first.
 
EXCELLENT ANALYSIS OF THE NEEDS OF CHILDREN  Apr 4, 1997
This is an excellent read for all those who are truly concernedwith the welfare of children. While the economy has greatly alteredthe roles of both men and women, the question is raised whether it should be allowed to alter the needs of young children. Penelope Leaqch intelligently presents the thesis that the needs of young children must be placed above all else. This is ever the more significant in light of the recent popular press attention regarding the critical development that is going on in the brain during the first three years of life. These first three years of life are so important that it only goes to underscore the author's plea that each child receive one on one "parenting" during this time to insure optimal growth. This is certainly not a popular notion today in light of the two-earner family(see Barnett's "She Works/He Works"),however, society must still measure the cost of ignoring what science is telling us is vitally important. This is not a nostalgic throw-back to the days of Ozzie and Harriet but rather a realistic analysis of what we as a society cannot afford to discount.
