Can Attachment Parents Put Their Own Happiness First?

By Jessica Williams for kidsinthehouse.com

 

Sometimes it can feel impossible for an Attachment Parent to put their own happiness first, even though, as every Attachment Parent knows, it is a deeply rewarding and mutually beneficial style of parenting. With the child's needs at the forefront, however, it can be a demanding parenting philosophy and in-the-moment parental needs are often put on the back burner. This KidsInTheHouse.com video from Christine Carter , Ph.D., sociologist for UC Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center and author of Raising Happiness: 10 Simple Steps for More Joyful Kids and Happier Parents, explains three reasons why your children will thrive if you put your own happiness first. There must be a way to do it all :-)
