We do discourage members from dragging discussions from one board to another. In this matter, given how viral this topic has been within the news media, blogs, posts onsite and off, and all the comment sections of each, I understand that there are passionate views that are going to be expressed... from both sides of the topic. The nature of this board is such that it is a place to discuss and yes, likely vent about your feelings on the portrayal of attachment parenting by others (again, meant in general and referencing things from on and offsite.) I do caution everyone on ALL sides though to feel free to express your frustration but work to avoid the very type of "blanket statements" that you loathe directed from the "other side."
Something important that has struck me in reading through the various discussions, debates, news stories, etc. is that there does seem to remain a bias in the news coverage which, I believe, is why TIME supposedly took on this topic in the first place. I'd love to have some of you drop by our blog "Did TIME Magazine's Breastfeeding Cover Go Too Far?" and add your comments!! We're also looking for more ideas of what you would like to see included in our articles on Attachment Parenting. Let us hear from you!
I have shared this thought with others today but love the fact that our main mission here at Pregnancy.org is centered on empowering and encouraging one another in our journeys to and through parenthood! Thank you all for continuing that focus!
