I read Dr. Sears, and I thought it mostly seemed like decent, common sense advice. Basically, “attachment parenting” amounts to “stay calm and be a good role model” and “don’t treat your infant the way an apathetic social worker would treat a Ukrainian orphan.” I don’t see how these people could distort that into “remain absurdly anxious about everything” and “treat your child like a little baby forever and ever and ever and don’t ever let him grow up” unless, of course, they’re codependent emotional parasites who deliberately ignored all the stuff about letting toddlers be independent and explore just to satisfy their own narcissistic desire to be “needed” by a perpetual infant. But whatever. Less competition for my kid. More therapy bills for them.
