The oldest cultures in the world have mastered the art of raising happy, well-adjusted children. What can we learn from them?

 In Hunt, Gather, Parent, Michaeleen sets out with her three-year-old daughter in tow to learn and practice parenting strategies from families in three of the world’s most venerable communities. Filled with practical takeaways that parents can implement immediately, Hunt, Gather, Parent helps us rethink the ways we relate to our children, and reveals a universal parenting paradigm adapted for American families.  Michaeleen Doucleff, PhD is a global health correspondent for NPR’s Science Desk, where she reports about disease outbreaks and children’s health.  As a science journalist, Doucleff has reported on a broad range of topics, from the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, vaccination fears, the microbiome to beer biophysics and dog psychology.
