Yeah, I agree with you on this one PL! Absolutely ridiculous. Although technically "Attachment Parenting" is not so much an oxymoron as it is a "be careful what you wish for" statement. If your goal is to have a child that is completely attached to you, (physically and emotionally), quite literately for the child's entire life, then "Attachment Parenting" is the answer! I just hope you're prepared to go to school with the child, go to college with the child, go to work with the child, etc. etc. for the rest of your life because that child will NOT be able to do any of that on their own!
Thanks, L56, for your rational position. It gives me hope that adults like yourself might come to understand that child-bearing and child-raising require different sets of skills. (Jamie Lynne Grumet should have quit while she was ahead, say in the first 6 to 18 months.) In a more enlightened society, the younger adults would do the former and the elders would do the latter. Looking forward to that day!
