Attachment Parenting Support ($35 per hour, 1 hour minimum) “The long-range vision of Attachment Parenting is to raise children who will become adults with a highly developed capacity for empathy and connection. It eliminates violence as a means for raising children, and ultimately helps to prevent violence in society as a whole. The essence of Attachment Parenting is about forming and nurturing strong connections between parents and their children. Attachment Parenting challenges us as parents to treat our children with kindness, respect and dignity, and to model in our interactions with them the way we’d like them to interact with others.” (Attachment Parenting International)
As parent myself, I have been practicing the principles of Attachment Parenting for 14 years. I have taught the implementation of techniques such as breastfeeding, skin to skin, baby wearing, co-sleeping, positive discipline, and teaching young children emotional literacy and I have seen so many babies grow to be loving and well-balanced children. I have also seen these methods drastically improve parent/child relationships when applied to older babies and children (you don’t have to start at birth). I help families develop child friendly practices for each unique situation and help them pick and choose what works for them. This service can be used in person, through email, or over the phone.
