Attachment Parenting School-Agers, Tweens and Teens
Attachment parenting is a life long parenting philosophy. A respectful parenting style can continue beyond the baby and toddler years of babycarrying, breastfeeding and co-sleeping. As the physical contact between parent and child lessons, the main connection is now in building communication, empathy and problem solving skills between parent and child, as well as family traditions and having fun together.
How to Attachment Parent Older Children by Applying the 8 Ideals
Use distraction, modelling, childproofing, I-statements, active listening, and problem-solving. Have more family meetings as your child gets older. Avoid all "punishment-lite" methods such as time-out, grounding, with-drawel of privileges, and taking things away. Resolve conflicts respectfully as you would with any other person.
Find time to meet your varied needs at the same time as your childs. You are important too!

PART ONE - MEDIA IS THE OTHER PARENT
Parents and children today face very different challenges from those faced by the previous generation. Today's children play not only in the sandbox down the street, but also in the World Wide Web, which is too big and complex for parents to control and supervise. As young as age two, your children can contact the world and the world can contact them. A strong bond between you and your child is critical in order for your child to regard you as their trusted advisor.
"I was quite impressed with Plugged-In Parenting: Connecting with the Digital Generation for Health, Safety and Love. The fact that you have devoted this kind of focus to the issue of digital technology as it relates to the parent/child relationship is amazing in itself. I liked how you wove the PET- Parent Effectiveness Training philosophy and skills throughout the video. I thought you made a very good case about respectful relationships and what makes them work. You made a very credible and strong case against punishment and an effective case for problem-solving instead. I especially like your focus on influence and how parents gain and keep it and how they lose it. That's a powerful message."
Linda Adams, President, Gordon Training International Parent Effectiveness Training, P.E.T.
"Offers many tips, ideas and strategies for parents to limit the amount of computer and video gaming, but in a respectful, caring and connecting way."
