  • Attachment parenting. "Many attachment parents choose to live a natural family living (NFL) lifestyle, such as natural childbirth, home birth, stay-at-home parenting, co-sleeping, breastfeeding, babywearing, homeschooling, unschooling, the anti-circumcision movement, natural health, cooperative movements, naturism and support of organic and local foods."

  • no. helicopter moms are mothers who do not respect their children's space even when they show signs of needing it.
    an AP mom is very in tune with her child/ren and allows individualism.

  • again, anon is wrong.
    I am not overly over protective. i am not even overprotective.
    i allow my boys to climb trees and other such things. i do not hover over them or do everything for them.

    AP just means you have a strong bond with your child, you are in tune with your child and you do things to enhance that relationship. ...there are many studies that suggest that the AP style is very good for kids and promotes independence, a good self-esteem and (over all) a very healthy child.

  • Well, my husband and I shared a room/ bed for the first few months. I breast fed for the first 2 months of her birth and I have put her in a baby sling at times we even took a bath together a couple of times. I feel I have a strong bond with my children and have done things in their life to enhance our relationship...my children are independent, have a good self esteem and their all healthy...so..why all the labels? I really don't consider myself an AP mom, although I have done some of those things at times in my child's life. Why can't MOM"S instead of these little cliques...kinda funny we have groups of mom's almost like little gangs bullying other mom's and visa versa.
