There is no manual for how to parent. And the way you parent each child is going to look different because you learn as you go; they have different personalities, different needs, and the family dynamic looks different with each child.
There is a lot of advice out there and there is a lot of information to take in. What works for each family is going to vary because we are all different. Luckily there has been a lot of research done over the past few decades which demonstrates that attachment parenting is beneficial to the child, and to your relationship, for so many reasons!
Attached Parenting strives to educate parents about what attachment parenting is, how to apply the basic principles to their family, provide them with the resources to feel supported during pregnancy, birth, and beyond, and empower parents to make the best possible decisions for their family!
By offering a variety of learning modalities parents can do what works best for their schedule and their situation. Attached Parenting offers webinars, parenting classes (group and private setting), and parent coaching (in person, over the phone, or online). Click on the services tab to learn more.
