Steve Biddulph, the favourite number one name in parenting
psychology - and bestselling author of Raising Boys - examines how
different childcare options are likely to affect you and your child
in this rivetting and highly topical book This topical book tackles
a key issue all new parents face. Steve Biddulph looks at childcare
choices and the dilemmas that so often arise: - `I want to stay at
home with my child but don't know how I can' - `I don't know what
is better: nursery, creche or childminder' - `if other people look
after my child will it affect its development and happiness?' It
examines the two-income `slaves to work' culture in the UK and how
in the past ten years, the number of babies and toddlers under
three who are spending all day (8am to 6pm) in nurseries has
quadrupled. Biddulph urges caution and warns that the hurried and
disconnected way that families now live their lives could be
damaging to a whole new generation's mental stability and
development. The book is an eye-opener in terms of child
development and provides useful case studies from parents who are
stay-at-home and those using all-day or part-time childcare -
groups sociologists have named `slammers' and `sliders'
