Sunday Surf: Parenting, Non-Parenting, and icky stuff

It was a normal week, with a few appointments. I found a bunch of links, though. I like limiting my list to 3 links, though, so here are 3 of them... I should already have material for next week!

What Everyone's Missing in the Attachment-Parenting Debate

Attachment parenting isn't about breastfeeding or babywearing or cosleeping. It is about responding to our children. This article shares some history - from before the well-known Sears book. Its pretty cool!

Family Bed Birthday Morning

An open letter to all parents from a non-parent.

You might have already seen this one since it is making the rounds no Facebook, but it is just too funny to miss - if you haven't already seen it. It might even be a good one to share with your non-parent friends to help them understand why you might not have quite as much of an attention span for them these days.

FDA Asked to Take Ban Use of Pesticide for Head Lice

This was coming people, I knew it was coming! I've posted before, Lindane is bad! I have lots of posts about lice and how to treat it naturally.

Consider this: The EPA banned the use of Lindane in pesticides, but the FDA still allows it to be used on children's scalps! It is seriously scary stuff. Go read the article! I'll be so glad when the news reports that Lindane HAS been banned completely!

  1. Attachment parenting could also mean, "Learn each other" in a way that you can't without prolonged close proximity. You get to a point where an attached family is very much attuned to one another.

    So having raised 2 attached kids, one in HS and one in MS, as an education activist I think sometimes about "attachment schooling." Finding the time and the place in school for kids and adults to become attuned to each other. Not exactly attachment, perhaps; doubt co-sleeping would be approved! But creating the circumstances where a group can get to a nice level of peaceful friendship.
