Using a lively array of anthropological and sociological sources, this book presents a provocative examination of the reasons why, today more than ever, parents need to make consistent physical connections with their children, and why this should begin during infancy. Complete with inspiring examples from cultures all over the world, the text clearly proves the power of closeness, and shows parents how to share more of it with their children.
