The Crucial First Three Years by Sheila Kippley (1998), 8 pages. Click here to view and print.

This small publication is also available as a chapter in Breastfeeding and Natural Child Spacing. The following quotation is from a review of that book.

"In the chapter on the first three years of life, the author makes an impassioned please to mothers to remain home with their children in the first three years of their lives, as only the mother can provide the nurturing and the nourishing the child so dearly needs. She substantiates this strong statement with quotes from many experts in the fields of psychology, social development, and pediatrics. She then shares the view of two experts who clearly demonstrate that the net financial gain for the working mother is extremely low in most cases. Ms Kippley discusses from a practical standpoint the valuable role for the stay-at-home mother."
