My kids are 5, 3 and 9 months. I cant imagine what life looks like without breastfeeding and slinging and other things we do ... what does AP mean to the family of older kids?

I hope this isnt a dumb question. lol I guess I am feeling sort of sad b/c my youngest babe is rapidly approaching toddlerhood... sniff sniff

I've been reading "Unconditional Parenting" by Alfie Kohn and for me, there is a lot of overlap between AP and Unconditional Parenting

Unconditional Parenting challenges the usual "punishment/reward" thinking about how to raise children, and offers strategies for parents that help protect the parent-child relationship, maintain kids' self esteem and sense of empowerment, encourage self-governing without making kids feel pressured or pushed, etc. Read it if you haven't yet!
