You've heard the expression - "it takes a village to raise a child."
Most sources claim it's an ancient African proverb but the origin is debatable. One thing is for sure though. Although valid, it is a saying rooted in an era that was much different than our world today.
Centuries ago, children grew up in hunter-gatherer societies. Children were carried everywhere and never left alone. They felt secure and safe as they were often in the company of several adults in their tribe or village. Families relied primarily on their biological instincts to raise their children. There were no books or technology. Kids thrived on hi-touch instead of hi-tech.
Today we've moved away from hunter-gatherer tendencies...
