Attachment Parenting

This is a new one for me, I’ve not heard of this until a friend on Facebook posed this question, “Does anyone out there practice Attachment Parenting?” One click of the mouse and I learned what it is. If you don’t know, may I suggest you begin by going here. I would also offer up this…”The Continuum Concept: In Search Of Happiness…
Jean Liedloff, an American writer, spent two and a half years in the South American jungle living with Stone Age Indians. The experience demolished her Western preconceptions of how we should live and led her to a radically different view of what human nature really is. She offers a new understanding of how we have lost much of our natural well-being and shows us practical ways to regain it for our children and for ourselves.”

Those of us who raised our kids before the internet, it is a wonder they ever grew into adulthood. If you read everything there is and tried to follow every experts advice, you’d lose precious time with you baby. I say rear by the seat of your pants method with alittle help from the pro’s is the best way. Every child is different and only you living 24/7 with that baby makes you the pro. Let common sense be your guide, you’ll do just fine!

  1. Having taught various college psychology courses, including developmental psychology, it is my observation that theories come and theories go. Some theories seem to enter into the realm of fads, and IMHO, attachment parenting is one of those.

    Interesting post. While theories do come and go, I think the fact that babies need continual closeness should be instinctual to “normal” mothers, and seems to stand to reason then that it would contribute to a well emotionally developed person in attachment areas. Also, I think it’s good to have care takers be relatives or people who will love the baby when they are away from mom with lots of hugs and loving moments.

    I am a grandmother of three, and I was lucky enough to be close with them…moreso the first two than the third. I find that the more “bonding” time I got with each one as a baby — and believe me I tried to do that as much as possible — the closer I am with that child as they grow older.
