A History on Parenting!

Miller covered a great deal of parenting tips from previous decades that reveal where some of the ideas about parenting seems to have originated from. She speaks candidly about the dangers and harm this form of parenting has brought children through the years. Revealing just how expendable children are to adults. The truth wins out. Even if you do not want to believe it, there are some very valid points made in the book by Alice Miller. A great tool to help change adult outlooks about children. How easily we forget what our childhoods were like.

A very good book, not a bedtime story to be sure.
