Provocations is a ground-breaking new series of short polemics composed by some of the most intriguing voices in contemporary culture. Never less than sharp, intelligent and controversial Provocations is a major new contribution to some of the most vital discussions in society today. Parenting has become a headache, leaving parents feeling failures because they can't live up to all the expectations of society. This book is the antithesis of all parenting discussions and public policy, which takes as its starting point that the 0-3 years determine everything that follows, mainly through a series of arse-on-backwards research propositions, which take middle-class outcomes as superior, and then tracks back to isolate what exactly it is that middle-class parents do. We can all accept that a lack of parental love leads to terrible outcomes, but the truth is, pretty well all parents love their children, and the main differences can be isolated with all the usual economic metrics. Can any parent or child really feel good in this quest for perfection and perpetual blaming?
