Summary

Las culturas más antiguas del mundo siempre han dominado el arte de criar niños felices y bien adaptados. ¿Qué podemos aprender de ellos?

Una lectura obligatoria para las mamás y los papás que buscan soluciones inteligentes y creativas a los problemas de crianza que más nos preocupan y frustran.

Después de ser madre, la periodista científica Michaeleen Doucleff, curiosa por aprender acerca de métodos de crianza más efectivos que los que actualmente practicamos en Occidente, decide visitar una aldea maya en la península de Yucatán. Allí se encuentra con mamás y papás que lo son de una manera totalmente diferente a la nuestra y que crían niños extraordinariamente amables, generosos y serviciales sin tenerles que gritar o regañar. Enseguida se da cuenta de que la mayoría de los grandes desafíos a los que nos enfrentamos los padres occidentales como inculcar amabilidad, empatía y confianza en los pequeños no resultan un problema en otras culturas.

Pero, ¿qué más nos estamos perdiendo de la sabiduría ancestral? Tras hacerse esta pregunta, la autora decide partir con su hija Rosy de tres años para aprender y practicar estrategias de crianza de distintas familias en tres de las comunidades más venerables del mundo: los mayas en México, los inuit sobre el Círculo Polar Ártico y los hadzabe en Tanzania.

Estas familias demuestran no tener los mismos problemas con los niños que nosotros y logran construir una relación muy diferente con los pequeños que se basa en la cooperación en lugar del control, en la confianza en lugar del miedo y en las necesidades personalizadas en lugar del desarrollo estandarizado.

Michaeleen Doucleff es corresponsal de Science Desk de NPR. En 2015, formó parte del equipo que ganó un premio George Foster Peabody por su cobertura del brote de ébola en África Occidental. Tiene un doctorado en Química de la Universidad de California, Berkeley, y vive con su esposo y su hija en San Francisco.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

The oldest cultures in the world have mastered the art of raising happy, well-adjusted children. What can we learn from them?

Hunt, Gather, Parent is full of smart ideas that I immediately wanted to force on my own kids.” —Pamela Druckerman, The New York Times Book Review

When Dr. Michaeleen Doucleff becomes a mother, she examines the studies behind modern parenting guidance and finds the evidence frustratingly limited and the conclusions often ineffective. Curious to learn about more effective parenting approaches, she visits a Maya village in the Yucatán Peninsula. There she encounters moms and dads who parent in a totally different way than we do—and raise extraordinarily kind, generous, and helpful children without yelling, nagging, or issuing timeouts. What else, Doucleff wonders, are Western parents missing out on?

In Hunt, Gather, Parent, Doucleff sets out with her three-year-old daughter in tow to learn and practice parenting strategies from families in three of the world’s most venerable communities: Maya families in Mexico, Inuit families above the Arctic Circle, and Hadzabe families in Tanzania. She sees that these cultures don’t have the same problems with children that Western parents do. Most strikingly, parents build a relationship with young children that is vastly different from the one many Western parents develop—it’s built on cooperation instead of control, trust instead of fear, and personalized needs instead of standardized development milestones.

Maya parents are masters at raising cooperative children. Without resorting to bribes, threats, or chore charts, Maya parents rear loyal helpers by including kids in household tasks from the time they can walk. Inuit parents have developed a remarkably effective approach for teaching children emotional intelligence. When kids cry, hit, or act out, Inuit parents respond with a calm, gentle demeanor that teaches children how to settle themselves down and think before acting. Hadzabe parents are world experts on raising confident, self-driven kids with a simple tool that protects children from stress and anxiety, so common now among American kids.

Not only does Doucleff live with families and observe their techniques firsthand, she also applies them with her own daughter, with striking results. She learns to discipline without yelling. She talks to psychologists, neuroscientists, anthropologists, and sociologists and explains how these strategies can impact children’s mental health and development. Filled with practical takeaways that parents can implement immediately, Hunt, Gather, Parent helps us rethink the ways we relate to our children, and reveals a universal parenting paradigm adapted for American families.
