Thank you Jean!,
This review is from: The Continuum Concept (Arkana) (Paperback)
I read this book originally in 1977 when my 30 year-old son was 4 months old. I never again used a pram, cot, playpen or highchair. My other three children were born at home & reared the Continuum way - in fact I carried my toddler in a backpack when I was in labour - they are now aged 30 - 26 and despite many difficulties have grown into happy, healthy, pacifist & helpful adults with their own children - I don't knit so bought each of them sling of their choosing as a birth gift. They remember their childhood as happy & carefree - though I was divorced & then widowed befor the eldest was 10. I am SOOO thankful I found this book & learned how to break the terrible legacy of generations of abuse.
I met Jean a few times & arranged for her to come & talk to a group of parents. Very glad she wrote this book & I took it to heart..
