Childrearing Lessons from the Deep Past

First a link to a piece on parenting by Jared Diamond who has intimate knowledge of hunter gatherer societies in New Guinea.

The subtitle summary: "Hold them, share them, let them run free."

Second a link to Peter Gray's series on lessons for education from hunter gatherer societies.
The subtitle summary: "Children are designed by nature to educate themselves."
