The Continuum Concept, Book Cover
"I don't know whether the world can be saved by a book, but if it could be, this might just be the book."
John Holt
"This book is the work of a genius."
Robert Epstein, PhD
Psychology Today

This website has been created to educate and serve the public — especially parents, parents-to-be and anyone who cares about the well-being of infants and children — by advocating the principles described in The Continuum Concept and suggesting practical ways to integrate them into daily life. We also hope to serve those who are recovering from the adverse effects of a modern, "non-continuum" upbringing, and who may or may not be parents themselves.
