What is Attachment Parenting? by Jan Hunt (external site)
Attachment parenting, to put it most simply, is believing what we know in our heart to be true. And if we do that, we find that we trust the child. We trust him in these ways:
- We trust that he is doing the very best he can at every given moment, given all of his experiences up to that time.
- We trust that though he may be small in size, he is as fully human as we are, and as deserving as we are to have his needs taken seriously.
