I think that Madia Bowman had a great idea in writing a book about Dr. Denmark's philosophies, but regret that it is not thorough enough (nor well enough written) to answer today's skeptical attachment parents. What I really wish is that Dr. Denmark's own book could be edited down to be more readable and concise, and to include a good index and glossary. The richness of her stories and experience come across in her beautiful language and really make sense in a way that a quick listing of her recommended schedules, etc., do not. Here is a quick example of Dr. Denmark's common sense philosophy, taken from her book (pp 2-3):
"Many times when I meet parents who are in tears with their first baby, I say to them, 'You see that little squirrel out there in that tree; she has babies and she has never read a book or been to a doctor--yet she knows just what to do for them. If you will just settle down and think for yourselves, you will find that these problems are not half as big as they seem. All that little squirrel does for her babies is to feed them, keep them clean, warm or cool, and away from people.' Maybe it is not quite that simple, but it is not half as complicated as the books, neighbors, grandparents, and doctors would make you think it is."
With that said, as Mrs. Bowman's book is the only one on Dr. Denmark's philosophies currently available online, I would not argue against its purchase. However, if you can get a copy of Dr. Denmark's own book, or talk with one of the many families who have benefited from knowing her personally, you will get a much better feel for how her wisdom compares with much of the parenting advice now in circulation.
