The second of the 2010 Attachment Parenting International Principles of Parenting Blog Carnivals is quickly approaching. This month’s blog carnival will focus on API’s 2nd Principle of Parenting – Feed With Love and Respect – and the submission deadline is this Friday, March 12, 2010.
Here is an excerpt from API’s 2nd Principle of Parenting:
Feeding a child involves more than providing nutrients; it is an act of love. Whether providing for the very intense hunger needs of a newborn, or serving meals at the family dinner table, parents can use feeding time as an opportunity to strengthen their bonds with their children.
Feeding With Love and Respect goes beyond the infant and preschool years and extends throughout childhood. In addition to stories about nurslings and toddlers, I am looking forward to reading about how families with older children continue to practice this principle beyond the nursing years.
