5.0 von 5 Sternen Hold your baby!
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,...

3.0 von 5 Sternen Important, but badly in need of updating
One aspect of this classic book that I haven't heard much about is the extreme homophobia it contains. Liedloff suggests the likelihood that homosexuality is a result of ill child-rearing and unhealthy relationships with opposite sex parents, as well as some other very stereotypical nonsense. This was ignorant to say in the seventies, but in the late 1990's, it is...

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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I was touched by reading about my own childhood experiences, 17. August 1999
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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book should be on every parent's bookshelf., 14. April 1999
This book changed the way I viewed parenting. I was fortunate enough to read it shortly before the birth of my first child, and then I read it again, and then I got rid of the crib, baby swing, feeding chair--all "necessary" baby equipment, with the exception, of course, of the car seat. My son was in contact with a loving human (myself, my husband, or his grandparents) for about 95% of his pre-crawling life, including sharing our bed at night. (At two and a half, he is making a smooth transition to his own bed.) I received countless comments from other mothers about his quietness when in arms, and his general contentment which seemed to surpass that of their children. Aside from the terrific ideas presented in this book, the writing itself is highly readable and extremely interesting. I give this book to anyone I care about who is expecting. I am eternally grateful that my midwife loaned her worn copy to me. Vive Liedloff!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Teaching us to respect our little humans, 11. Dezember 1998
The continuum concept not only revolutionized my approach to parenting, but has also given me insight into the cultural influences which helped shape my self image. This book was deeply liberating and has resulted in a non adversarial relationship between my children and I. I am reading the book for the third time and I sincerely believe it is the answer to the worlds problems. The author has also made excellent videos toillustrate her hypothesis in Bali. She also will do telephone counselling for parents in a crisis situation with their relationships with their children. Applying these basic priciples of respect has led to harmony in our home and other avenues of my personal life. Children only act up when we misunderstand them as a result of our cultural conditioning. This book is AWESOME!!!!!!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen What you don't know CAN hurt you!, 19. Januar 2000
I so appreciate Ms. Liedloff's book....I only wish I had read it sooner. Her style is poetic and yet scholarly. I was thrilled that she gave voice to those of us who knew "continuum" or "attachment" parenting was right but felt like we were alone in the world (and sometimes in our own home!) I was also left with hope that it's never too late.... Despite the fact that I've only partly continuum parented due to external, intellectualized objections I rejoice that I'm learning (from my children) and now have global/ethnographic support for doing so.

4.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent, interesting, enlightening book., 21. April 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Reading this....changed the way I think about childcare. Thebook is intelligent and emotional as it tries to express what feelsright in a "continuum" society and what feels terribly wrong in our own.
I do think the book has its share of flaws. It is somewhat influenced by Liedloff's romanticized impression of the jungle and of the indigenous people, which is okay, except that it makes it questionable as true anthropology. Some of her conclusions are really not supported by science and are offensive today, like the ideas of how gay and lesbian people are produced (bad parent relationships). Please, Liedloff, rethink these things and print a new edition!
It's for a good reason that this book is called "almost the companion book" to _Ishmael_, by Daniel Quinn. Both see something of great value in indigenous societies, and make an essentially successful attempt to show it to us. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed _The Continuum Concept_ and would recommend it to anyone expecting a child.

This was ignorant to say in the seventies, but in the late 1990's, it is extremely insulting and disrespectful. An updated edition is needed, as well as a discussion about how very insightful ideas can be attached to very ignorant ones!

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the most important books you'll ever read, 8. Mai 2000
Not since Daniel Quinn's *Ishmael* has a book so altered myview of the world. This book, too, has the power to change theworld. This is an important book for all who have read Quinn, and also for anyone who has a child, knows a child, or ever was one.
The only thing I didn't agree with was what Liedloff said about homosexuality. Recent studies suggest that homosexuality may be linked to toxemia during pregnancy. Don't think, though, that Liedloff is homophobic or hates gays or anything...
