Full description for Beyond the Sling
ATTACHMENT PARENTING rests on one revolutionary principle: you already know the majority of what you need to know to be an incredible parent. Popularized by physicians like Dr. William Sears and Dr. Jay Gordon, attachment parenting directly contradicts the two hundred years of Western culture that has convinced us that we need a lot of help: help giving birth; help "teaching" our baby to sleep; help just being a parent. "Beyond the Sling "is not that kind of parenting book. Mayim Bialik shows us that by understanding the basic theories of attachment and infant development--and incorporating age-old childrearing methods like breastfeeding, baby wearing, gentle discipline, and co-sleeping--we can truly be the parents that nature intends us to be. With a PhD in neuroscience and a specialization in the hormones of attachment, Bialik is uniquely qualified to explain the science behind the method and how it's your evolutionary right to tap into your intuition and enjoy every stage of parenthood. A mother of two young boys, she also offers a firsthand account of how she came to follow the tenets of attachment parenting, plus a down-to-earth guide to making this lifestyle work for every kind of family. With candor and warmth, Bialik describes the beauty, simplicity, and purposefulness of attachment parenting and shows us that its core principles are universal and can be appreciated no matter how you decide to raise your child.
