The child psychologist whose book Your Baby & Child has provided indispensable advice to a new generation of parents now offers a groundbreaking book which suggests that even the best parenting may not be enough in a society that is hostile to children. Leach shows how our laws, employment polices, and culture end up depriving children of their parents.
Penelope Leach was educated at Cambridge University and at the London School of Economics, where she received her Ph.D. in psychology. A Fellow of the British Psychological Society and a founding member of the UK branch of the World Association for Infant Mental Health, she works on both sides of the Atlantic for organizations concerned with prenatal care and birth, family-friendly working practices, child care, and early-years education. She lives in Lewes, England.
"A Book Full Of Wisdom and challenge, written by one of the world's leading nurturers of parents. Dr. Leach is deeply concerned about the inadequate support and parenting children are getting in our present marketplace society. She challenges all of us to put families and children first, and she suggests innovative ways that not only society but individual parents can bring about change in our priorities. A wonderful book!"
