A is for Attachment Parenting, a style of parenting that is growing with popularity more and more everyday.


Attachment parenting, a phrase coined by pediatrician William Sears,is a parenting philosophy based on the principles of attachment theory in developmental psychology. According to attachment theory, the child forms a strong emotional bond with caregivers during childhood with lifelong consequences. Sensitive and emotionally available parenting helps the child to form a secure attachment style which fosters a child's socio-emotional development and well-being. In extreme and rare conditions, the child may not form an attachment at all and may suffer from reactive attachment disorder. Principles of attachment parenting aim to increase development of a child's secure attachment and decrease insecure attachment.
When mothers are taught to increase their sensitivity to an infant's needs and signals, this increases the development of the child's attachment security. Sears's specific techniques of attachment parenting remain under study.
The Mommies Network offers forums on all of our local chapters and on the National forum for mothers that practice Attachment Parenting and want to learn more about it. Join us today or for more information visit www.themommiesnetwork.org
