It's about being responsive. I am still responsive and my child turns 9 this year. It's about being there, but letting them have the space to grow.
the child I did AP with totted right off to school no probs she was confident that I would be there for her i guess much more confident child
Attachment parenting changes as the child grows, because their wants and needs change. It is still about being responsive to your child, but in a different way to that of an infant or young toddler.
I would love to come back later when I have more time to discuss properly
Yep, I'm choosing homeschooling but my AP son is super confident and secure in himself. He's almost four
I have seen what happens to AP babies when live changes for what ever reason and they have to go to crèche its horrible, horrible for them and horrible for every other child in the room listening to them cry and scream all day long
Different babies temperaments and parenting styles all have an impact on how children transition into child care and school. A lot of people will see that, while it might take a while to transition originally, babies who've been raised AP style will form strong bonds with carers, as they know their needs will be met.
Jasper went off to daycare at 2.5 years without the slightest drama. Actually on his very first day when I said to him 'okay baby mummy has to go' he started crying and grabbing the table. I'm like 'no Bub, your staying, I'm going' and he sort of shrugged, kissed me goodbye & that was that! Gutted. Lol.
I agree with others AP changes as the child grows because it's about being responsive to your child's needs, not following a set of rules.
here is another over generalisation for everyone to jump on when not sharing the same opinion both children where from the same cultural background and screamed every day when not carried around all day
that's not fair for anyone
