Child-Raising Cranks

Prior to civilisation, it would be very difficult for a crank child-raising practice to spread. Only the tested and true would slowly spread. But with civilisation, any crank can pose as an expert and pontificate some completely untested theory and have it almost universally adopted just by writing a book, giving lectures or posting it on the web. Humans are extremely vulnerable to anyone who poses as an expert.
