What the world’s oldest cultures taught Dr. Michaeleen Doucleff about parenting
NPR Global Health Desk Correspondent, Dr. Michaeleen Doucleff, traveled to three continents with her three-year-old daughter, Rosie, along as her sidekick. Together, they lived with Maya, Hadzabe, and Inuit families, and learned how to tame Rosie's tantrums, motivate kids to be helpful, and build confidence and self-sufficiency. Michaeleen captured all that she learned in her New York Times bestselling book, Hunt, Gather, Parent. Liz checked in with her to talk more about her book, what makes modern Western parenting "weird," why the village is just ingrained in almost every culture except our own, and how we can incorporate what Michaeleen learned from these families into our own lives.
