My wife insists that I should never have "signed up" for attachment parenting if I wasn't willing to stick it through. When is enough, enough, though?
My perception is that my son is developing a very unhealthy attachment, and that he is going to grow up feeling not simply that someone cares for him, but that he is somehow powerless to care for himself, and that he needs to manipulate and throw tantrums until someone agrees to do whatever is necessary to fulfill his demands.
Neither of us can remember the last night of uninterrupted sleep we had, unless it be nights that we don't even bother taking him into his own room in the first place. Our ability to simply spend some quite, quality time together is greatly handicapped, we continually argue about what the effect of each other's approach will be, and I'm concerned that the immense stress this situation has brought into our marriage may end up damaging his ability to form healthy relationships more than just letting him cry it out and get over it.
I'm so desperate for a resolution to this issue. Any thoughts?
