From the Publisher:
In OUR BABIES, OURSELVES, Meredith Small lay bare the mixture of biological and cultural mandates that underlie parenting practices during the first year of a baby's life. In KIDS, she goes deeper. Deftly combining the latest scientific research into human evolution and her own nonjudgmental observations of various cultures throughout the world, Small delves into the lessons, both practical and abstract, adults pass on to their children during the all-important, early formative years between one and six.
Small explores everything from language development to morality. She examines how adults communicate with children, the kind of play they engage in, and the skills the emphasize--and why it matters. Her examples not only make fascinating and eye-opening reading, they provoke readers to rethink their own style of raising their children and to question whether the assumptions of our society promote or hinder a child's healthy emotional and social development.
