Today's generation could learn a thing or two about raising a child from our ancient ancestors.
Professor Darcia Narvaez has claimed that our ancestors had much better ideas about how to raise a child than 21st century families and that today's practices of keeping babies in buggies and car seats while not letting them roam outdoors could contribute to a dysfunctional generation.
"Their children were cuddled and carried about, never left to cry, spent lots of time outdoors and were breastfed for years rather than months."
