Attachment Parenting Month 2010 is in full swing! “Full of Love: parenting to meet the emotional and physical needs of children” is our theme this year with a focus on preventing childhood obesity and we’re extending our carnival of blogs!
Explore with us the challenges we face in raising children who know the healthiest ways to be nourished in every aspect of life. Participate in our Attachment Parenting Month blog carnival and share your experiences in keeping our children “Full of Love.”
To participate in the carnival, submit a post on our theme as we celebrate emotional and physical health. We’d especially like to hear from you if you’ve worked through any of these particular challenges:
- If you’ve struggled/are struggling to make healthier nutritional and/or activity changes. What has been the impact on the children? The whole family? (may be better or worse than desired or in flux)
- If you’re the epitome of physical health, yet have children who regularly make different, less healthy choices. How do you resolve the challenges?
- If your children are regularly exposed to unhealthy options, how did/do you work through this situation?
- If you’ve uniquely accommodated and/or resolved common food and activity emotional hot buttons. (Do you have an automatic impulse to make your child clean her/his plate? What do you do? How do you handle deserts? Vegetables? Do you require numbers of bites until finished? )
This post is part of the Attachment Parenting Month blog carnival, hosted by Attachment Parenting International. Learn more about how you can keep your children “Full of Love” by visiting API Speaks, the blog of Attachment Parenting International.
