Books that advocate forcing an infant or baby to adhere to a sleep training program carried out by the parent(s) are instruction manuals for abuse and neglect. Science supports these findings, as do our instinctual responses, if we as humans choose to listen to those instincts.

Here is the book on Amazon.

Amazon, please discontinue carrying this instruction manual for neglect and harmful methods to be used with our society's littlest and most vulnerable members...

      Many pediatricians still advocate forcing infants to sleep alone and to "cry it out" (CIO) so as to "break dependence" and avoid "spoling." This attitude dates back to the 19th century and has been shown to cause physical and psychological problems both immediately and later in life (including an increased risk of SIDS). Even the American Academy of Pediatrics has woken up and recommended that infants sleep in the same room as their parents. Amazon needs to take a stand for the most vulnerable members of society and stop selling these harmful publications.

      To call our society's parents to return to honoring their children, and revering each stage. When a child is most vulnerable, we are responsible to protect, to nurture, to immediately respond and provide. The most primitive of animals does a better job than we as a species are at this point in time. Please join me! Together we can educate, inform, support, and raise the next generation in homes where they are never diminished, where there is no violence, and rather than an inconvenience, each child is honored, respected, and cherished. Let's raise up a generation of honored children, grown whole.
