The Incarnating Child: Holistic Parenting and Child Health

The mystery of conception, pregnancy and birth stir within many people a sense of wonder. The Incarnating Child picks up Wordsworth’s theme, “Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting,” and follows the soul life of babies into early childhood and beyond. Packed with practical advice and thoughtful insights, this inspiring book will be invaluable to parents, carers and anyone concerned with the healthy development of children.

The Incarnating Child addresses physical, soul, and spiritual development; the formation of healthy personalities; nutrition, clothing, environment, and toys; the processes of learning; immunization and health; and the acquisition of skills and the ability to think.

Here are practical insights for mothers, fathers, family and anyone concerned with childcare into:

  • Pregnancy, birth, babyhood, early infancy, childhood on up to adolescence
  • Children’s physical, spiritual and psychological development
  • Nurture and the effects of the environment
  • The formation of healthy personalities
  • Nutrition, immunization and health
  • Clothing, toys and early learning in the acquisition of skills and thinking
