Embracing Balance: Mama's First Guest Blog

Dear Delilah,

Many of the parenting choices that your father and I are committed to come from the Attachment Parenting philosophy. Staying consistent with Attachment Parenting ideals can be challenging for any parent, but especially for parents who work (or like me, go to school) outside of the home.

I had the opportunity to write a guest blog for Alternative Mama about how we strike a balance and make Attachment Parenting work for us, even with other obligations that need tending to. The piece I wrote can be found HERE.

Every bit of tricky scheduling and every sacrifice have been worth it to ensure that you are cared for in a  safe, sensitive, loving, consistent, positive way. You've already begun to demonstrate the independence and confidence that secure attachment provides, and it is a joy to watch as you come into your own in unique and charming ways.

  1. Hi Joella!
    Glad to find you! Great blog, and this is such an important topic. I know so many who think AP is synonymous with Never Being Away from your child, so thank you for writing on this! I'm heading over to read your article.


  2. Thanks again for contributing Joella :) it's so important to remember that you dont have to be there *all the time* to be an attached parent. i have been hankering after going back to school at some point and reading your post makes me think that maybe it's possible for me to do that and still be the mum i want to be. thanks :)
