Attachment Parenting....an excellent summary

My partner and I have widely adopted the techniques described as important for fulfilling our bubbas emotional dependency needs....and it is amazing how often people comment on our babies peaceful and contented nature. A close friend of mine has said that our son is the happiest baby she has every known! In the early days, friends and family commented that he "wanted for nothing" which was why he was so content! It is beautiful watching him grow into toddlerhood knowing that we have done our…See More

Dear Josette, it's so good to be chatting with you about empathy and Robin's book here on the EF network. I am not surprised that you find it both challenging and rewarding. It does connect my experience to everyone else's I find. So many apparently 'good' parents are still of course acting out the enormous wounds of childhood even when they are acting well within the norms of our society. In way we are all survivors of childhood!
