HOWEVER, they have a policy of no telephone contact at all for ten days. This feels so unnatural to me. Can you really go from attachment parenting to this, just like that?
This was my daughter's idea. She is a very independent girl. She has no problem not telephoning me. She thinks it is a small price to pay to be able to ride horses and kayak and make new friends.
I am feeling sick to my stomach thinking that I can't talk to her. Background, she is an only child of two older parents. I nursed her until forever, we homeschool her, we never put her in day care, except for on-site day care where both my husband and me could go in to see her whenever we wanted. Family bed, etc.
Is this normal?
