Me: I studied anthropology at LSE. I then programmed talks and events at the ICA, The School of Life and The Guardian. Inbetween and all along I’ve made music and performed.
The Blog: As a parent you often wonder if there’s a better way of doing things. You might turn to friends and family or like many of us you’ll scour the internet for ‘solutions’. Is co-sleeping the best or the worst thing to do? Is breastfeeding until the child is three totally ‘natural’ or strange and unnecessary? Should fathers be involved in all aspects of birth or is that an anomalous modern phenomenon?
As a former student of anthropology I wondered not just what others like me were doing but what others in completely different societies might be doing. As a result I’ve decided that whilst some advice in the West is very helpful I can also choose to ignore the things I don’t want to do and I’ve found this very consoling. This blog aims to do the same for you.
