London: Parents should carry their babies upright instead of pushing them around in prams because it aids their development, a leading US scientist has claimed.Jared Diamond, the Pulitzer Prize-winning scientist, said children could benefit from basic parenting methods which have been abandoned in the west but are still used in more traditional societies around the world.Indigenous people living in the African rainforest, for example, use a variety of behaviours which developed over hundreds of thousands of years of human history, but which have recently become "unfashionable" in the modern world, he said.In his new book, The World Until Yesterday, Diamond argues that readopting traditional child-raising methods could help parents raise children with good qualities like confidence and curiosity.
