And now the second on the list…
Attachment parenting is a parenting philosophy for the well-being of the psychological development of a child. It consists of birth-bonding, breastfeeding, babywearing, bedding close to your baby, belief in the language value of your baby’s cry, being cautious of baby trainers and a well-balanced parenting.
It will take forever for me to explain what all these are so please google them (again, use the internet to find out what you can do best for your child), purchase books, join a forum, talk to other mothers about them. All these help to build a strong, confident child. Keeping your children close to you for as long as you can assures them of your love and affection for them and thus, providing them with the self-esteem they need when they are on their own as they grow older.
Never let your child cry to bed. Go to them when they need your attention. There will come a time when they don’t need you as much and that’s when you will regret the moments you deny them of.
Also, let your children grow and develop at their own unique pace. Never hurry them with all kinds of strict trainings just for your own convenience. They need to go through their childhood at the duration planned out for them by the Creator himself. Hurrying them will only make everyone miserable.
