Alanis Morissette recently posted an article on The Huffington Post dedicated to the benefits of attachment parenting. Alanis, who has a toddler named Ever, wrote the piece in response to the recent Time magazine controversy. Here’s an excerpt:
“I personally believe that the attachment stage, done well, can circumvent countless addictions later in life because many of these addictions are often a temporary attempt at feeling this sense of connection. If a child’s needs during this stage of development are not met, he or she will be staving off a haunting sense of cellular disconnection and loneliness for a lifetime. They will not have effectively internalized a loving nurturance as their own love-style.”
In the article, Alanis discusses how attachment parenting affects children during the different stages of the development process.
