《New Book Condition + Compulsory Reading For Any Parent Or Considered Becoming A Parent》Dr Mayim Bialik - BEYOND THE SLING : A Real-Life Guide to Raising Confident, Loving Children the Attachment Parenting Way
A real-world guide to Attachment Parenting from the Big Bang Theory actress, neuroscientist, and mother Mayim Bialik--a book hailed by Dr. William Sears as "delightful" and by Ricki Lake as "a fantastic guide to birth and parenting that is packed with invaluable wisdom." The neuroscientist and actress best known for her roles in "Blossom" and "The Big Bang" Theory describes how she forged positive relationships with her sons through Attachment Parenting practices, sharing science-backed, anecdotal advice on how to address a child's fundamental needs at various stages of development without resorting to pop culture trends. ATTACHMENT PARENTING rests on one revolutionary principle: you already know the majority of what you need to know to be an incredible parent. Popularized by physicians like Dr. William Sears and Dr. Jay Gordon, attachment parenting directly contradicts the two hundred years of Western culture that has convinced us that we need a lot of help: ➽ help giving birth; help “teaching” our baby to sleep; ➽ help just being a parent. Beyond the Sling is not that kind of parenting book. Mayim Bialik shows us that by understanding the basic theories of attachment and infant developmentâand incorporating age-old childrearing methods like breastfeeding, baby wearing, gentle discipline, and co-sleepingâwe can truly be the parents that nature intends us to be. Mayim Bialik was the child star of the popular 1990s TV sitcom Blossom, but she definitely didn't follow the typical child-star trajectory. Instead, Mayim got her PhD in neuroscience from UCLA, married her college sweetheart, and had two kids. Mayim then did what many new moms do--she read a lot of books, talked with other parents, and she soon started questioning a lot of the conventional wisdom she heard about the "right" way to raise a child. That's when she turned to Attachment Parenting, a philosophy and lifestyle popularized by well-known physicians like Dr. William Sears and Dr. Jay Gordon. To Mayim, Attachment Parenting's natural, child-led approach not only felt right emotionally, it made sense intellectually and instinctually. She found that when she followed her intuition and relaxed into her role as a mother instead of following some rigid parenting script, both she and her children thrived. Taking into account her experience as a mother (and her scientific background), Mayim presents the major tenets of Attachment Parenting, including: ● Baby wearing: How to "wear" your baby in a sling or a wrap to foster a closer bond with your child--it's possible even for mamas with bad backs (and with big babies)! ● Breastfeeding: Learn how to listen to your baby's cues rather than sticking to a rigid schedule--and why people on airplanes love a nursing mother! ● Gentle discipline: How to get your child to behave without yelling, threats, or time-outs--it really is possible. ● Co-sleeping: How to avoid "sleep training" and get a great night's sleep for the whole family. Without the pretense and luxuries typical of so many Hollywood actors and parents, Mayim describes the beauty, simplicity, and purposefulness of Attachment Parenting, and how it's become the guiding principle for her family. With a PhD in neuroscience and a specialization in the hormones of attachment, Bialik is uniquely qualified to explain the science behind the method and how it’s your evolutionary right to tap into your intuition and enjoy every stage of parenthood.
