"Jean Liedloff, an American writer, spent two and a half years in the South American jungle living with Stone Age Indians. The experience demolished her Western preconceptions of how we should live and"


"The Continuum Concept" introduces the idea that in order to achieve optimal physical, mental and emotional development, human beings - especially babies - require the kind of instinctive nurturing as practiced by our ancient relatives. It is a true 'back to basics' approach to parenting. Author Jean Liedloff spent two and-a-half years in the jungle deep in the heart of South America living with indigenous tribes and was astounded at how differently children are raised outside the Western world. She came to the realisation that essential child-rearing techniques such as touch, trust and community have been undermined in modern times, and in this book suggests practical ways to regain our natural well-being, for our children and ourselves.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Hold your baby! 26. April 1999
My husband and I read this book 9 years ago, before the birth of our son, and it spoke to our hearts. Employing the simple idea that a baby who starts life in the womb shouldn't be abruptly separated from the mother after birth, we maintained almost constant contact with him for the first few months. I was amazed at some of the resistance, resentment, even hostility, people sometimes demonstrated when informed that we slept with our newborn and never left him to cry. All their protests were based on nothing but groundless fears -- "You'll roll over and smother him! You'll 'spoil' him!" Etc. Well, he became naturally more and more independent and separate at his own pace, not an arbitrarily imposed one (that's the "continuum" part), and weaned himself from the breast at 11 months, rather than at a time decided by the "experts" or demands of employment. He is now 9 years old, and is a wonderful, happy, secure, well-adjusted boy, and I never cease getting compliments from everyone who meets him on how considerate, engaging, empathetic, kind, and well socialized he is. I credit Liedloff's book for all of this. If I could give one message to all would-be parents, I would say: Don't buy into the lie that material things are what's important to provide your child, and if you yourself are so wrapped up in financial gain that you won't temporarily sacrifice it to bond with him the first year of life, you're selling yourselves short. Invest the first 6 months to 1 year of his life raising him in your arms, and you will be giving him, and yourself, more than a billion dollars could ever buy.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Return to Common Sense 27. Juli 2000
Probably the most powerful book I have ever read; a book that questions today's societal values concerning convenience and tecnological advances. As a future educator and community volunteer, I witness decay that begins in the family and spreads into society. We live in a society that creates people who are afraid, self-conscious and irresponsible. Liedloff gets to the source of these problems - problems that stem from the very beginning of life. After reading the book, I felt guilty and embarrassed for straying from common sense, but Leidloff provides the reader with the courage and power to return to common sense. I have seen the concept's impact: youth are much more self-confident, responsible and independent - traits that everyone should possess. It is definately a concept well worth considering and implementing.

Von Ein Kunde
I am not a mother, but I am a doughter (26 years) and a human being. From this perspective I have the strong feeling that Jean Liedloff's findings touch the deep truth of our souls. I was an extremly difficult child for my parents to cope with. They had to get up about 10 times a night because laying alone in my bed I was screeming and vomitting. The doctor could only tell them that I was a nervous child. All my youth I lived with the belief that I was a difficult and somewhat bad child. After all, from what people would judge, I have developed into a quite decent person, anyhow. Nevertheless, I feel that Jean Liedloff's idea of holding a new born child and submitting unquestioned support and love by this, brought into action by my parents, would have saved my family a lot of stress and would have given me a much better basis for my live. Emotionally, I can remember the feeling of being left alone and I know that it still affects me in my life today. I don't know yet whether I should give the book to my mother, for she would hate herself for the way she treated me, although she always had the very best intentions. I only know that I am convinced about this way of being there for your children physically and that I will act in this way if ever I become a mother. All parents or future parents should read this book to at least be inspired to think over their ideas of parenthood. Living by Jean Liedloff's findings should not become a dogmatic rule but a support for a better direction in parenthood. What would probably be important to parents, I could imagine, is to be able to exchange their experience, to get practical hints (this is something the book could have focused on some more!), and generally to live in a society that respects and supports children and their parents more.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A treasure chest of parenting wisdom 5. April 2000
A friend told me that this book picks up where Spiritual Midwifery leaves off. So, I read it while I was pregnant. Where the former book completely changed the way I view childbirth, Continuum Concept radically altered my view of childrearing. I knew I wanted to parent my child in a way that was very different from how I had been raised, but I wasn't sure just what to do. This book taught me to trust my heart and intuition. It taught me to know that if I listen to my son and learn from him as much as I teach him, then he will grow up strong and secure and loving, despite this crazy world. Her observations of the indigenous family structure were profoundly insightful, showing us that, sadly, we have lost a great deal in our material culture. True, there are many books related to parenting out there, but I encourage all parents to read this one. I have given a copy to every pregnant friend for almost 10 years now, and everyone has loved it and passed it on. Few investments are this worthy.
