9781137547323: Neuroparenting: The Expert Invasion of Family Life

This book traces the growing influence of ‘neuroparenting’ in British policy and politics. Neuroparenting advocates claim that all parents require training, especially in how their baby’s brain develops. Taking issue with the claims that ‘the first years last forever’ and that infancy is a ‘critical period’ during which parents must strive ever harder to ‘stimulate’ their baby’s brain just to achieve normal development, the author offers a trenchant and incisive case against the experts who claim to know best and in favour of the privacy, intimacy and autonomy which makes family life worth living.

The book will be of interest to students and scholars of Sociology, Family and Intimate Life, Cultural Studies, Neuroscience, Social Policy and Child Development, as well as individuals with an interest in family policy-making.

About the Author:

Jan Macvarish is Researcher and Lecturer at the Centre for Parenting Culture Studies, University of Kent, UK. She is the co-author of Parenting Culture Studies, (Palgrave, 2014).

Review:

“This book shows that there are more problems with brain-based parenting than bad neuroscience.  Jan Macvarish, analyzing the issue from a broad historico-cultural perspective, shows how the neuroparenting movement inhibits sound policy formation, impedes social justice, and threatens family privacy and parents’ rights. This is a highly significant contribution to the early childhood policy literature.” (John T. Bruer, James S. McDonnell Foundation, USA, author of “The Myth of the First Three Years”)
