Synopsis

Rahima Baldwin Dancy warns against rushing children through childhood. She advocates a "slow parenting" revolution which will allow children to develop at their own pace, and crucially, will help parents discover confidence in their own ability to parent and enjoy the magical first years of raising a child.

Customer Reviews

Absolutely beautiful and brilliant book! Gentle, kind, practical and well explained. Should be and will be a classic! A timely reminder of the precious nature of childhood and how it should be celebrated and enjoyed for what it is .... the perfect antidote for the modern psychologically pressured and harrassed family! Should be handed out at antenatal checks;)
