Customer Review

on 28 November 2011
I don't like prescriptive child-care manuals, I prefer to follow my instincts when it comes to parenting. The title led me to expect that I wouldn't care for this book. I was wrong. Deborah Jackson's "rules" are no more than common sense, the collected wisdom of human evolution.
There is nothing of the popular Gina Ford-type guru about Jackson. She speaks from experience as the mother of three herself and along with the shared wisdom, she provides a fascinating anthropological perspective with snippets of research and tales from other cultures to illustrate the rules.
The accessible style and presentation of the information with readouts headed "Did you know?" and a summary of each chapter "in a nutshell" means that a mum with a crying baby might actually find the time to read and digest what Jackson has to offer and it's certainly worth reading.
