It is very difficult to be a good father. The main reason is knowing what to do in each situation. Of course you will do what you think is the best but there are alwalys lots of doubts.
For instance, there some popular books that ask you to let your baby cry in order to teach him or her the correct manners. I just could not stand the idea of doing something like that.
This book is an alternative that is based in a close relation with your baby. Skin to skin. It has a simply message. Do you love yo

I'll be buying my own copy of this book. It's not the best argued, the way it uses evidence is possibly rather suspect, but it has a unique eloquence.

It's a lovely book that I'll want to re-read and share with others, especially when I want a laugh, and to get some perspective, especially when I despair of my children behaving as I would like them to. It's quite unusual to read polemic with such humour. I've heard Carlos Gonzales speak and despite the challenges of excellent English with a heavy

This book was the first book about parenting that told me that it was Ok what I was doing with my son: caresing him, sleeping with him, "spoiling" him. Then I found "attachment parenting" : http://www.attachmentparenting.org that validated what I knew in my heart, but was embarrased to accept in public :)

This is a very interesting book, writing by a pediatric (Carlos González) dealing with many of the myths and falsehoods of child care.
Truly, it pays special attention to the called "Método Estivill" (the Spanish version of the behavioral Ferber method), although it deals with a huge amount of other well established believes and myths.
Basically, he gives scientific evidence (on a huge bibliography) of their falsehood and erroneousness providing the results of statistical data (if available) or po

Shelves: parenting, shit
Piece of shit. The author uses the kind of arguments that won't hold together and the kind of comparisons that only use extremism to try to convince you. Honestly, piece of shit. If you want to read a really good book about the same subject, with about the same conclusions but with real scientific backup, please read "Bright from the Start" by Jill Stamm & Paula Spencer. I'm so sorry for those who can only read Spanish, becase this piece of shit is in their language and the really good books ...more

[quote]"The book you are reading is not an attempt to strike a 'happy medium'; it is taking a clear stand. [b]This book assumes all children are essentially good, that their emotional needs are important and that we as parents owe them love, respect and attention.[/b] Those who disagree with these principles, who prefer to believe their child is a "little monster" and are looking for ways to bring him to heel, will -regrettably, in my opinion - find plenty of books more in line with their belief ...more

Bravo! This book just makes so much SENSE! If only we could all take this laid-back view of parenting our children that embraces what comes naturally - wouldn't life be easier for us all. I love his humor as well - makes for a very enjoyable read. I love the comparisons he draws between how we treat other adults, and how we should treat our children - with equal respect.

Un excelente manual de puericultura, que la hace mucho mas sencilla y humana que muchos otros intentos más duros y pretendidamente lógicos de explicarla.

Un libro que parte de la premisa de que los niñxs son buenos, y sólo buscan sentir cariño y hacer feliz a su madre y padre. Y que para probarlo, a veces sin quizá mucho rigor pero sí al menos buenos ejemplos, desmite decenas de mitos que ponen a los hijxs en ese lugar de "pequeños demonios".

Recomendable para cualquier persona que trabaje con c

Este libro explica la visión del Carlos González sobre la crianza infantil. Después de tantos "métodos Estivill" y demás derivados me parece un punto de vista terriblemente respetuoso y humano, para el que sin embargo hace falta ser valiente (estoy segura de que muchísima gente sigue opinando que los métodos para "domesticar" niños son el no-va-más y que esto no es sino un paso atrás hacia la esclavitud y represión de los padres por parte de los críos, esos terribles manipuladores).

Oscar Sánchez borges
Es un libro que quiero regalar a todos mis amigos papás nuevos, contrapone de una forma divertida la realidad como la ve un niño a como la vemos los adultos, resultando en ser consciente de nuestra incongruencia al exigirle a un niño lo que no aceptaríamos para nosotros y renunciar a domesticar a nuestros hijos para dar paso al amor y aceptación incondicional como mejor método de crianza.

Compelling, challenging, frustrating...I'm one of those hippy parent types, so the author is pushing at an open door, so to speak, but he still gave me plenty of food for thought.
The technique of taking a paragraph from a standard childcare manual, or an invented conversation, and replacing "child" with "wife" or "woman" or "foreigner" or "slave" (etc) might seem as though it would tire with repetition, but it keeps working even though he keeps using it.
It's a massive challenge to us as parent

Puede gustarte su filosofía o no, pero el autor pasa todo el día criticando otras ideas y poniendo comparaciones inverosímiles, resulta bastante pesado y no guía nada a los padres. La idea puede ser buena y clarificadora, pero con leer las primeras páginas basta para captar su mensaje.
Liss Martz
Este libro me lo recomendaron muchísimo para informarme más sobre la crianza con apego. Me gusto pero no es tan impactante, esperaba algo más. La mayor parte del libro el autor realiza críticas constructivas a otras teorías sobre la crianza de los hijos, incluso comparando situaciones infantiles con situaciones que pueden ocurrirnos a nosotros. Podría parecer un poco extremista, a veces me parecía gracioso. Al final no te da consejo de como tratar situaciones agobiantes, el mensaje del libro es ...more

Me encantó! Un bebé no es un adulto chiquito. Un bebé necesita amor, sentirse protegido. Necesita respeto. Y la última frase del libro me pudo muchísimo. Todos los papás y futuros papás deberían leerlo :)
Adriana
Me encanto este libro. Te dice porque los niños son como son y te da buenos consejos basados en la crianza con apego. A quien le gusté ese tipo de crianza amara este libró.
Marthamerlo
Me pareció super bueno. Una lectura que refuerza mis creencias sobre la importancia de una crianza natural, cercana y amable. Lo disfruté muchísimo y lo recomiendo.

Mágnifico, elimina las viejas creencias que te impiden vivir tu maternidad de forma natural y consciente. Te enseña a ver a tu hijo de otra manera...

Mejor libro del mundo!!!

Dopo "Io mi svezzo da solo" ecco un altro bel libro di Gonzalez, che con il suo personalissimo ed a volte estremo modo di scrivere "illumina" i genitori con un'unica verità di fondo: ascoltate il vostro bambino, il vostro istinto innato, amate e rispettate profondamente la vostra creatura, senza più farvi disorientare dalle teorie dei cosiddetti esperti di turno dell'infanzia, che tanti danni hanno fatto o stanno ancora facendo e che tanto prima o poi è probabile che verranno contraddetti.

Although this book at times seemed to get a little on the emotional side, I tend to agree with a lot of the author's viewpoints so it didn't feel too abrasive to me. It might be a little more irritating to someone who doesn't feel very strongly one way or the other or disagrees with the author about certain things.

All in all, I enjoyed the book and I thought a lot of the things the author said made sense. The author does a better job at disagreeing with existing viewpoints than supporting their

I just realised this book is already 10 years old, so it could be excused somewhat from a repetition of ideas found in plenty of other books of a similar ilk. It does read a little like a shopping list of examples - this is how they did it in the old days/how not to do it now, but that could be useful if you wanted to use it to refer to in case of a specific problem. Some of the references are good but at times other arguments are a bit huffy and simplistic. I was amused on one or two occasions ...more

Read this in English but couldn't find the English edition here. Anyway, this is an amazing book by Spanish paediatrician Carlos Gonzales. Some very sound advice there, on holding babies/children more, not letting them cry out, how to treat them respectfully etc. Couldn't recommend it more!
Miren71
Aunque estoy en acuerdo con la idea de criar con mucho amor y respeto a los niños este libro aboga por el respeto total a los deseos, sentimientos y gustos de los niños en toda situacion. No aporta soluciones concretas a problemas concretos y se hace pesado de leer en varios momentos.
Raquel Casas
Una auténtica delicia de libro y un auténtico oasis de confianza y serenidad para los que vamos a ser padres primerizos. Mi visión de la maternidad y de esa nueva etapa vital dio un giro de 180 después de que una amiga me regalase este libro. Lo regalaré, recomendaré y ensalzaré indefinidamente!!!! ...more

Great book

Take this book as a resource to remind us what we already know: that children are people and need love and affection, just the same as any adult.

Por besar, tomar y abrazar a un bebé éste no se malcría. Los niños nacen acostumbrados a los brazos y a lis mimos

Feel-good book on attachment parenting. The translation has lots of weaknesses / typos though.
Luzali
Una lectura que te cambia la vida!
Porque /&%/&$&&)(/ no lo leí antes, ahh ya me acordé porque la edición española era muy cara y me esperé hasta conseguir esta edición mucho más económica. Una delicia de leer, los comentarios y los ejemplos te hacen reír y sobre todo reflexionar. Además me he llenado de argumentos para todo aquel que vuelva a expresarme su opinión acerca de que en mi familia se practique el colecho.

En vez de las pláticas horrorosas y mal hechas que te hacen tomar

Maybe I'm one of those brainwashed parents who has been influenced by too many parenting manuals but I wasn't convinced by this book. It used contradictory reasoning and related back to evolutionary biology but in a completely non-logical way, so it left me feeling like I couldn't actually trust anything it was saying. I also believe in everything in moderation, so while the ideals here are good some of the time (and that bit is common sense) they also need to be used with boundaries some of the ...more
