Eda J. Le Shan
Eda J. Le Shan was an American writer, television host, counselor, educator, and playwright. She was a “voice of respect for the inherent integrity of children”.
LeShan's books include When Your Child Drives You Crazy, The Conspiracy Against Childhood, and It's Better to be Over the Hill than Under It.
She wrote: " ...In all our efforts to provide "advantages" we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history and possibly the unhappiest."
“Babies are necessary to grown-ups. A new baby is like the beginning of all things: wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities. In a world that is cutting down its trees to build highways, losing its earth to concrete… babies are almost the only remaining link with nature, with the natural world of living things from which we spring.”
