Why Attachment Parenting Is Not the Same as Secure Attachment

A hundred percent this. I didn't do attachment parenting, I used tools they'd co-opted into their theory like carrying, and used whatever else I needed to make it through.

As a peer supporter, I have seen far too much anxious attachment versus secure in parents who try to follow AP. Moreoever, attachment is variable and not guaranteed from birth onwards.

From the article: “There’s a difference between a ‘tight’ connection and a secure attachment,” Sroufe explains. “A tight attachment—together all the time—might actually be an anxious attachment.”

But attachment is not destiny; it depends on what else comes along. A poor start in life, for example, can be repaired in a subsequent relationship with a good mentor, a healthy romance, or constructive therapy.

https://greatergood.berkeley.edu/article/item/why_attachment_parenting_is_not_the_same_as_secure_attachment

Parents who embrace attachment parenting can be distressed when they can’t live up to its ideals. They shouldn’t be.

Check this out. The benefits of babywearing are pretty spectacular, even if it's just to tie your youngest to your body to get stuff done. But the idea of sleeping through the night as a cultural myth is very accurate.

Parents In Lockdown Are Quietly Falling Apart—I’m One Of Them

How many of you are feeling this?

I have been myself overwhelmed and just doing from one moment to another some days. I miss adult only spaces like my job, as a single parent I rarely spend quality time with another adult during this pandemic and who knows what the summer will bring.

Though my kids are older, I am surprised at how much time I spend parenting then having to work at the same time. Sometimes the same moment I am trying to speak in a meeting, while the dogs lose their s**t and I'm miming *cut it out* to everyone. Or answering weird questions on mute while trying to pay attention.

Those of you with children younger than mine, I know you are making it through because there is no option. But when I hear my friends stories, my heart pauses. Trying to both work and raise kids under three is mission impossible. Thinking of you all.

As we hide in our homes waiting out this virus, I’m worried about another, silent, pandemic.

I know getting a gift from a secret ninja can help brighten things up (and to gift too) but please do not post your address openly, names and ages of family members and other details. Stay safe.

RCMP warns against being "ninja'd", urges public not to share personal information for social media gift exchanges

An increasingly popular social media trend is raising concerns for police. Today, RCMP NL cautioned the public against sharing personal information of themselves or their children in online groups in order to participate in gift exchanges.

A number of groups have recently been created promoting anonymous gift exchanges where persons who join the group provide personal information about themselves, including their name, home address and favourite things as suggestions of potential gifts. In some cases, participants are sharing names and ages of children. Some groups offer gifts of wine, treats and bath products, delivered by anonymous “wine ninjas”.

The RCMP strongly advises against the sharing of personal information in these groups, especially information on children. While many of these groups are well-intentioned and the activity is not illegal, one should not assume that every person has good intentions. Providing personal information about children specifically runs the risk of opening up communications between online predators and children. Please use caution and common sense when taking part in such activities.

Canada Post is experiencing Christmas level volumes due to online shopping. And without having been able to staff up and toss in additional protection measures. Things will just take awhile...

We're experiencing delays as we put safety first. ​

As we deliver Christmas-level parcel volumes, the important safety measures we've implemented in our facilities mean it is taking longer to process. Thanks for your continued patience & support. Read more: http://ow.ly/68kO50zmtPH

Hope you are all enjoying your Easter weekend. Yesterday almost felt normal, Sunday closed, cooking all day, stuffing my face until my body cried uncle.

But it isn't and it wasn't. Love to hear what you did to make this weekend happen.

I ordered chocolates early to ensure I got them on time. I splurged beyond normal because it's s**tty right now so why not have good treats.

I'm glad I made the effort. It's amazing how you can be so intermittently sad, stressed and yet achieve small pieces of satisfaction along the way.

Hugs to you all.

Libraries in my home town close after the weekend. I panic borrowed! Can you imagine being stuck with the kids and rereading the same books to them a billion times more than usual?

Cheesy romances, have that.

These Canadians who caught novel coronavirus say they barely knew they were infected

This is a hard time for many, it can be challenging to manage your anxiety and take care of the family. Most cases are asymptomatic. Basically you don't know you have it. Which is good because we'll be ok. Any closures are to slow down the transmission to protect the vulnerable, not due to death rates.

Cuddle your babies and take care of yourselves.

“It was sort of scary, not knowing how long it would take to become negative, having the challenge to communicate,” said Yerex.

A Seattle lab uncovered Washington's coronavirus outbreak only after defying federal regulators

The US has not been testing consistently for COVID-19 (coronavirus) and has no sense of the extent of the virus' transmission. In Canada, we have. March break is coming up, anyone travelling? I recommend that if your babes are quite young that you consider post-poning.

A lack of test kits for the new COVID-19 coronavirus is still obscuring the extent of the outbreak in the U.S., but for a critical period in February, there were no functional federal tests and "local officials across the country were left to work blindly as the crisis grew undetected and expon...
