This book insults "thinking" mothers and fathers
on July 10, 2002
I consider myself an "attachment parent" - my son is exclusively breastfed, he sleeps in the Arm's Reach cosleeper and I carry him whenever I can. And, believe me, I love Dr. Sears as much as the next mom. But I found this book to be nothing more than propaganda for Dr. Sears. On top of that, the author makes you feel guilty and stupid if you don't follow her ideas to the T. This book left me feeling like my son would be scarred for life unless I did exactly what it says. Sorry, but parents and children are more complicated than that, and I prefer to think for myself.
If you want to know more about attachment parenting, skip this patronizing and insulting book and go straight to something from the Sears library.
