What is Attachment Parenting?
Attachment parenting babies, toddlers, preschoolers, school-aged, and teenager children is a natural, instinctive approach to parenting and MAY involve breastfeeding, babywearing, and co-sleeping, BUT definitely embraces respectful communication, non-punitive guidance of behaviour, and a warm and nurturing, structured, parenting style, that includes nurturing, attentive response to both children's and parents' needs at the same time. It's a family-centerd parenting approach based on mutual respect between all family members.Attachment Parenting has 8 ideals:
- Prepare for Pregnancy, Birth and Parenting
- Feed with Love and Respect
- Respond with Sensitivity
- Use Nurturing Touch
- Ensure Safe Sleep Physically and Emotionally
- Provide Consistent and Loving Care
- Practice Positive Discipline
- Strive for Balance in Personal and Family Life
Peace in the world begins in the home. Healthy, respectful, peaceful, nurturing, supported and educated families are the building blocks of a healthy and peaceful society.
