From John Locke to Dr. Spock, there have always been well-intentioned experts ready to dispense words of wisdom to the parents of infants, but much of the information is contradictory. In this updated edition of her 1983 book on how and why the experts' advice keeps changing, Christina Hardyment analyzes the anxieties of our own age and gives parents much-needed confidence in their own ability to choose the caregiving credo that best suits them and their babies. With 16 pages of color plates as well as black and white illustrations throughout, Hardyment's book is not just a how-to but also an eye-opening look at the misguided and even bizarre approaches we have taken to raising our children.
