What is attachment parenting really all about?

Posted in Feed Play Love.

These days every kind of parent is labelled with a style: helicopter, free-range, lawnmower.

None of these so-called styles are helpful, but there is one style of parenting that has been found to be beneficial to kids.

Chances are you already apply some of its techniques.

It’s called attachment parenting, and it’s not what the media has led many to believe.

Psychologist and mum Rachel Bridge explains the history of attachment parenting, and why it’s so good for kids.

Rachel is also working on a book to help parents and carers connect with their children. It’s called The Puzzle of Us and it’s being supported by a Kickstarter campaign. For more information about the book visit their Facebook page @thepuzzleofus
