Why Attachment Parenting Is Disastrous For Children

By Michael Grose

Attachment parenting is a new parenting fad and its number of devotees are growing. This style of parenting places children at the centre of the mother-child relationship and flies in the face of how we have raised kids for thousands of years.

Attachment parenting means kids are breastfed until they choose to stop - four, five, six years of age. It doesn't matter. They stopped when they want - no weaning please.

Attachment parenting means kids are not nappy or potty-trained. Mothers do the toiletting not the kids. They poo and pee when and where they want.

Attachment parenting means that the child sleeps with his mother, while their father is relegated to another room. Those who practise attachment parenting put their lives on hold.

For thousands of years we have raised kids to fit in with family or group norms. Healthy child-rearing is about children fitting in, rather than the other way around.

Developmentally, kids are required to grow away from the parents. Attachment parenting stops them from separating and makes children helpless and dependent on parents for longer than necessary.

Healthy families know a child's place in the person, partner and parenting triangle. When we put the person first (yes, you do have a life) and the partner second (if you have a partner you nurture this relationship) we have the ideal conditions to be an effective parent. Attachment parenting denies the person a life of their own and places the mother-father relationship at the periphery rather than the centre of the family.

Attachment parenting reminds me of another child-centred fad - permissive parenting - that was similarly misguided and had disastrous results.

It is negligent to practise such unresearched fads on children.

Good Parenting – Providing Benefits For A Lifetime

By Michelle Bery

Good parenting can not be clearly defined, as it is very often a subjective concept. One parent’s definition of good parenting may be another’s definition of poor judgment. Cultural differences impact parenting standards enormously as do a myriad of other things. Luckily there are a few fundamental standards that are held by society as a common measure of good parenting.

As parents, the most basic of our responsibilities are to keep our children safe and healthy to the best of our abilities. A parent who struggles to feed their child because of economic reasons, or a parent who lives in a less than safe neighborhood can hardly be considered a bad parent. The key here is the “best of their abilities” – good (or bad) parenting can often be defined by intent. The care a parent provides for their child – that is consciously intended to be beneficial can help us define good parenting.

For our purposes, a child who is clean, well fed, and healthy as a result of the care provided to them by their parent’s best efforts is said to be the product of good parenting.

Additionally, a child’s emotional well being is just as important as their physical well being. Good parenting means making yourself emotionally available to your children – encouraging them and supporting their journey through life. A child who is emotionally healthy – happy, secure, and self-confident – can often attribute their emotional health to good parenting.

Conversely – a child who acts out behaviorally, inflicts harm on himself or others, and is emotionally shut down is often missing good parenting. Keep in mind, however, that many of these warning signs can be the result of depression and other medical conditions. But when none of these conditions are present, the parenting of the child should be addressed.

Schools will often become involved in assessing the existence of good parenting when danger signs become evident within school. A child who is noticeably neglected physically – comes to school unkempt, unclean, and otherwise unhealthy on a consistent basis will raise red flags. Additionally, a child who appears emotionally unstable, suffers from poor grades, depression, and/or social problems will also be noticed.

Children who are the product of good parenting will often be noticed as the children who excel in school, have many friends, and are happy, functioning members of the school community.

Good parenting can set the tone for a child’s whole life to come. Providing a physically and emotionally safe environment in which a child can flourish will provide that child a lifetime of confidence and emotional health so that they can pass good parenting along to their children.

Work At Home Using The Spider Web Marketing Business Opportunity

I've been generating a huge downline and bringing massive amounts of targeted leads to my "Spider Web Marketing System" and I wanted to share my secrets to sending the qualified traffic you need to make money online. First things first though, The Spider Web Marketing System depends on a few monthly residual programs to make sure you make multiple streams of income, and one of those programs central to the system and central to you making money is GDI - Global Domains International. I highly recommend you sign up before joining The Spider Web System so you can just add your GDI username to the system once you start setting up your income streams. You can sign up here now... Global Domains International or wait until you set up your income streams with The Spider Web Marketing System. It's totally up to you. Let me explain how this all will work for you....

We don't send traffic directly to our business opportunities, we first build our list and then we present the business opportunity or products.
The Spider Web Marketing system allows you to build YOUR business first and to follow up on the leads as the case may be with auto responders, phone calls or any other means of communication. Also it allows us to find other bases of collaboration in case the prospect is not interested in our business and we don't waste the traffic and leads we have generated. The Spider Web Marketing System does everything for you.

As a free Spider Web Marketing member, you get automated lead generation, 21 streams of income, and access to your upline for assistance. You need traffic and loads of it! Follow the Tutorials and sign up with all traffic related programs from your Spider Web Marketing back-office and motivate your team members to do the same to profit from the viral effect of the traffic sources. Then simply promote your system using this web 2.0 traffic system...

"Traffic Secrets"

What else? now you need Duplication and that means showing your team members how you build your business and motivate them to do the same. Your success is your authority and credibility and by using the same tools and strategies you build a team culture which is a great bonding factor. Further more: join meetings (online and offline where available or host them ) and motivate your team members to join meetings with new prospects, daily weekly monthly. Attend business related Seminars, and look into outside sources to promote your Spider Web Marketing System. Participate in all competitions and qualify for bonuses and prices and finally make it known, that you are successful with what and how you are doing it.

How to make it known? Publish your blog, get in control first of your name on Google, then on Business related key-words and make sure that who ever is looking you up on Google finds you and your qualifications to build credibility and trust. I have developed a strategy for doing so, the most aggressive and powerful tool I know of to get rapidly high visibility on Google; an example just last week-end I landed on Google rank 2 after just 3 days on a key word with
3.5 million returns! It's not hard to do, it's not rocket science, it's not even time consuming when you are using a powerful article submitter like this one...

"Article Submitter"

I've chosen to be the leader with this system to create 100 Millionaires in the next few years and I truly want to support that mission (now you've heard me say it). Because like me, and probably others, you're sick of the rinky dink "here today, gone tomorrow" business models out there today. And now, while many people are losing their jobs and banks are going out of business, THIS is when this type of industry explodes....when more and more people are going online looking for a
legitimate ways to make money online from home. The numbers are staggering. In fact, many of my members are getting pretty darn rich in times like this....

and it's only the beginning..... "ClickHere To Join The Spider Web Marketing System"
