Current Western parenting advice, says Deborah Jackson, stresses the need to minimise the "bother" that children cause; Jackson claims that this culture views the child as a potentially dominating personality that could undermine parental authority when older and emphasises that this tendency needs to be trained out of them early. The author disputes the scientific basis for such claims, and such a culture, and appeals to parents to trust their own instincts. Using extensive research she puts the case for a child-orientated approach to parenting.
This book is controversial, thought-provoking, carefully researched and passionately argued. It is extremely interesting, and, even if you don't accept all her conclusions, will definitely prompt the reader to reassess their own expectations of the parent-child relationship. --Alison Jardine

Every day I see crying babies, alone in their prams, who are calm and happy once picked up and in the arms of their parent. We too have bedshared with our baby, having had no 'broken nights' yet. She is a bright, strong, confident and happy child, who at nearly eight months is crawling everywhere and pulling herself up to stand. She is incredibly sociable and quite easily falls asleep without a feed or cuddle if she really wants to.
This book is inspiring and thoughtful, and worth a read no matter what you decide to do in the end, as although it is passionate in it's argument, it is very balanced and well researched.
