The oldest cultures in the world have mastered the art of raising happy, well-adjusted children. What can we learn from them?
When Dr. Michaeleen Doucleff becomes a mother, she examines the studies behind modern parenting guidance and finds the evidence frustratingly limited and often ineffective. Curious to learn about more effective parenting approaches, she visits a Maya village in the Yuca, Peninsula.
