I was referred this book by a friend but was really disappointed only two chapters into it. I finished it but was rolling my eyes for many parts of it. I liked how she says to treat your baby as a person, give them quality time with eye contact and let them work on playing independently at home. The parts I found ridiculous were asking permission to change your baby’s diaper or pick them up. You’re supposed to tell them each step of the diaper change as you’re doing it. She also doesn’t believe in any punishments and says timeouts and spankings are going to shame your baby. This advice is so harmful because punishments are a big part of discipline and understanding consequences in life. They can be given in love and compassion if done right.
