We practice Attatchment Parenting. (However we do not co-sleep with Bella.)
Everyone just rests better with her in her room and her own bed;)
We do not spank, we use gentle dicipline and try to focus on positive reinforcement.
I am currently reading EASY TO LOVE, DIFFICULT TO DICIPLINE;The seven basic skills for turning conflict into cooperation.,By Becky Bailey,Ph.D.
I love it. It is teaching me how to "re-word" things. I do not want to use guilt trips or manipulation with my kids. Sometimes in the heat of the moment I could easily repeat the words of my parents, out of conditioning.
I am very serious about not continuing that cycle.
The terrible 2's are fast approaching;)
