3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting,but not a 'bible'., 13 July 2001
This review is from: The Continuum Concept (Arkana) (Paperback)
I read this book after reading 'Three in a bed' by Deborah Jackson, which I thoroughly enjoyed and found to be useful, sensible and well-informed. Yes, the core concept rings true...and it has certainly worked for my baby, but as other people have said here, flexibility is so important, and no, we don't live in the jungle! I have also heard that Leidloff has been slightly misleading in that, although the Yequana babies did not kill themselves playing with the knives that are 'lying around', she did neglect to mention that many of them are scarred.... Basically, it's worth reading, but use your instincts and remember you are bringing up your child in a totally different world to the one discussed here, although I do believe that babies thrive on this concept of parenting. Read Deborah Jackson to get a more realistic take on it.

I have never seen any information on the Yequana stating that many of the children are scarred. Nor have I seen any scarred individuals when I've seen photos of Yequana. I cannot picture Jean Liedloff (the author), so obviously deeply concerned for children, lying about something like this. Nor can I see the loving, nurturing Yequana parents not taking preventative action if their children were regularly being scarred. The only time I've ever heard that the Yequana children are scarred was from someone on the American Amazon site giving the book a poor review. They gave no evidence to back their claim up. Most likely they made it up. I searched the Internet for proof of it and found nothing. I suspect that review is where this reviewer heard it.
