Would this agitate you?

I was a part of Meetup.com where new groups in your area get emailed to you. I had gotten an email recently for this Attachment Parenting group.
Ok... I am pretty thick-skinned when it comes to things but this totally rubbed me the wrong way as a parent.
There was a little paragraph about the group but the last sentence that stood out was, "if you aren't lazy about parenting this is the group for you"
What?!?!?!?
Ok just need to go there for a moment: Just b/c there are others out there that do not practice the AP way that does not make them lazy when it comes to parenting!!

  • I'm an AP mom, but that is totally rude! i would never assume a mother was lazy for not practicing AP style. It's moms like that that give us all bad names.

  • Is babywearing the same as carrying them in a sling while you do what you need to do around the house? I loved doing that with my babies. :)
