The relentless dependency of a newborn baby on his parents is, at times, overwhelming to some of us. This book explains the reasons for this dependency, and how it changes over time. Kaplan is a master, almost musical, writer. She has the gift of being able to take complex theories and ideas and make them accessible and understandable to the everyday person. Rather than providing instructions on ‘how’ to parent, Kaplan instead invites the reader to explore the journey each baby makes from oneness with his mother to his “second birth” as a unique psychological being. It explains the phases of emotional development of babies and toddlers – helping mothers, fathers and workers make more sense of infant behaviour.
