Ann Hulbert: Raising America

Raising America: Experts, Parents, and a Century of Advice About Children - Ann Hulbert

While I was reading this book, I was reading or had just read several books about parenting or full of advice for parents. This book was great for putting the advice into perspective. It is a historical, somewhat academic study of parenting "experts," both personally and professionally, since the field was developed two centuries ago. It helped me put the advice of the experts into context. I would recommend it to anyone reading parenting books and wondering how much credit to give them.
