Attachment parenting quote - and this is the hidden truth behind all those who criticize attachment parents

I will look back on all of the precious months and years of holding I did and be glad that I followed my intuition, knowing that when my babies needed simply to be held, I simply held them.

Brilliant quote from the wonderful Mayim Bialik and her book 'Beyond the Sling: A Real-Life Guide to Raising Confident, Loving Children the Attachment Parenting Way'.

so true - put down the phone/touchpad/tv remote/game console and pick up your kid! Don't let grandma raise them either.

Quote (Robert Shaw)

Attachment parenting is so rewarding. It makes me so sad for babies who aren't attached to their mothers at all. But one day she will wonder why her mother liked her phone better.

A baby's cry is their only form of communication.

"Don't stand unmoving outside the door of a crying baby whose only desire is to touch you. Go to your baby. Go to your baby a million times. We don't know why they cry or why they wake up, but they NEED YOU, mama.

This is a beautiful quote from Mayim Bialik- actress, neuroscientist and mum of two!

Mayim Bialik, attachment parenting, your child is a book, tuning into your child, being emotionally available

This is not to say these aren't teaching moments but I love the sentiment of understanding in this and knowing that as adults, we are far from perfect

I agree children need discipline but people get so judgmental and mad when a three year old is having a bad day. Your kids weren't perfect and neither are any one else's! So stop judging a parents parenting based off a one time meeting.
