How Eskimos Keep Their Babies Warm
by Mei-Ling Hopwood
Parenting wisdom from around the world
Quite possibly one of the most interesting books about parenting I have read.
The book doesn't give dish out advice, instead it informs the reader about the way some cultures raise their children.
- How Buenos Aires children go to bed late
- How the French teach their children to love healthy food
- How Kenyans live without pushchairs
- How the Chinese potty train early
- How Aka pygmies are the best fathers in the world
- How Lebanese Americans keep their families close
- How Tibetans cherish pregnancy
- How the Japanese let their children fight
- How Mayan villagers put their kids to work
- How Polynesians play without parents
- How Asians learn to excel in school
As a parent, I found some of the topics discusses are similar to the way I raise my son.
Others were simply beyond my comprehension.
Although globally, we may have different styles of parenting, our love for our children is endless and unconditional.
