Attachment Parenting

Peaceful Parenting for a Peaceful World
Attachment Parenting is a philosophy based on the practice of nurturing parenting methods that create strong emotional bonds, also known as ‘secure attachment’, between the infant and parent(s). This style of parenting encourages responsiveness to the infant or child’s emotional needs, and develops trust that their emotional needs will be met. As a result, this strong attachment helps the child develop secure, empathic, peaceful, and enduring relationships.

Our story:
My husband and I agreed from the very beginning of Keala Kaj’s life that sleeping with him felt so right. Our son never cried for the first two weeks of his life because his needs were always met and the trust we are building has never been severed. Without having a name for it at the time, we were instinctively following the philosophy of Attachment Parenting. For us it is about building the trust, confidence and bond that our child needs to know beyond a doubt that we love him unconditionally. We are committed to being as spiritually and physically present with our child as we can possibly be. Attachment Parentingprovides us with a definition for our philosophy, support when we need it, guidelines when we feel lost and a group of like minded parents to turn to when we need insight. Now at the age of two years old, Keala Kaj is a very happy individual.
