This recording is the third part of a multi-part episode on Professor David Lancy's book The Anthropology of Childhood.
In this episode, we look at community involvement in childrearing, including questions such as:
- Why do some anthropologists consider attachment theory, the most well-established component of developmental psychology, to be "cultural ideology"?
- Why, in most societies, are older sisters so keen to raise their younger siblings?
- What is "toddler rejection" and why is it so common cross-culturally?
- Do modern ideas of investing in children through parent-child play really make a difference?
Enjoy the episode.
