|MDC serves an online community of parents, families, and parent, child and family advocates considering, learning, practicing, and advocating attachment parenting and natural family living.
We recognize that attachment parenting is a continuum and not an absolute. Obviously no one can be 100% anything, all of the time. And while discussing where our parenting has fallen short of attachment parenting ideals can be useful within the context of a larger discussion of how we can grow into a more natural living/attachment parenting lifestyle, we don't host threads that brag about these shortcomings just for the sake of celebrating them.
Here on MDC, we seek to create a community where natural family living and attachment parenting are the norm, because that is Mothering's belief and purpose as a magazine and as a community.
