Jean Liedloff's acclaimed book,

The Continuum Concept


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, Author/Educator



This website has been created by members of the Liedloff Continuum Network (LCN) 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. The LCN, a worldwide network of people who are living by these principles, is a part of the Liedloff Society for the Continuum Concept, a non-profit organization sustained by volunteer efforts, membership fees and donations.
