Q. Were Cavemen and Cavewomen Better Parents than Modern-Day Moms & Dads? A. Yes.
This article, "Why Cavemen were better parents than we are today" is definitely worth a read. It solidifies my notion that attachment parenting is indeed the healthiest way to raise a child. The picture above illustrates how detached society has become when caring for kids. This separation will only harm future generations, as quoted in the article:
"There's an epidemic of anxiety among the young... Kids who don't get the emotional nurturing they need in early life tend to be more self-centered. They don't have the same compassion- related emotions as kids who were raised by warm, responsive families."
It's ironic that modern-day society views cavemen as inferior, while in this case, they clearly were wiser than most parents are today, with regard to raising children. Food for thought that all parents should digest...
