It was nearly two years ago now when I came out on my blog denouncing attachment parenting, saying simply, “Attachment parenting didn’t work for me. And, probably more importantly, attachment parenting didn’t work for Ezra.”
That post – by far my most controversial – has been viewed over 7,000 times and has garnered a lot of discussion, both positive and negative.
Gabby over at MamaGab asked me if I could elaborate more on the subject in a guest post for her. My post for her went a different direction than I had originally planned, but I feel that the result will be beneficial for EVERY mom.
What I learned from my experience with attachment parenting (and my experience as a mom, in general) has been far more complex than to simply denounce a style of parenting. Rather, the experience has taught me to embrace personhood and individuality and to balance both my needs and the needs of my child. That, above all, is the most important.
