In Support of Attachment Parenting

Posted by thethousandmarch on May 13, 2012 at 4:05 AM

I know I said I was going to write about Christianity for Losers, but a recent hubbub over a certain Time magazine cover has made me decide to write a post about attachment parenting first.

Ten Things We Will Teach Our Daughter

Jessi wrote this and I concur. 

1. All the opportunities, blessings and good things you and your family have in life are a gift from God. You did not earn them, did not do anything special to deserve them and they could be taken away at a moments notice by circumstances beyond your c...
