Winnicott’s review of ‘How to Survive Parenthood’ by Edna LeShan. Winnicott finds the author lively and with a good common-sense attitude, but regrets that her exposition of various kinds of therapeutic treatment is out of date. Rather than claim parenthood to be universal, Winnicott feels the book has value as a picture of contemporary family life in America.
