    Attachment Parenting: Actress Mayim Bialik (Blossom)

    Mayim Bialik aka “Blossom”: Celebrity “poster mom” for attachment parenting–Examiner~y2009m8d28-Mayim-Bialik-aka-Blossom-Poster-mom-for-attachment-parenting

    “Mayim Bialik, star of the hit 90′s TV series “Blossom,” has talked openly about her “strange” parenting practices. While many celebrities give a nod to breastfeeding, Bialik has made a true commitment to the attachment parenting lifestyle. She says she has researched her approach to parenting and chosen what she believes is best for her family. And research is something Bialik, or I should say Dr. Bialik, knows something about. She has a PhD in neuroscience from UCLA.

    “So what is it that Dr. Bialik has decided is best for her family? She practices extended breastfeeding (she nursed her oldest son until he was 2), babywearing and elimination communication. She is a huge proponent of home birth and her second son was born at home. They all share a family bed. Though her oldest son is only 3.5, they are part of a homeschooling community and are considering that a viable option for later schooling.”

    “There are so many interesting/somewhat controversial things that she is doing with her family: elimination communication, bed sharing, home schooling, home birth, and choosing not to vaccinate her kids.”

    What I appreciated the most from learning about Dr. Mayim Bialik’s parenting choices is that she arrived at them through RESEARCH.

    In my experience, parenting decisions that have been influenced by RESEARCH, unwounded INTUITION, and CHRISTIANITY all arrive at the same place, ATTACHMENT PARENTING.

    Seizing newborns an ethical minefield
    Protection Province has means, but using them controversial, ethicists say

    “McGill University ethicist Margaret Somerville believes governments should consider laws to identify unborn children as human beings with the right to protection…”

    “The Supreme Court of Canada has consistently ruled that, under current laws, the fetus does not exist as a human being needing protection, and the Criminal Code holds that a child becomes a human being for the purposes of a homicide offence only after it is born alive.”

    Reincarnated! Our son is a World War II pilot come back to life

    “A lifelong Christian, it was not the answer he had sought for his son’s behaviour…”

    “As the nightmares continued, she asked him: ‘Who is the little man?’”
    “‘Me,’ he answered. His father asked: ‘What happened to your plane?’”
    “James replied: ‘It crashed on fire.’”
    “‘Why did your plane crash?’”
    “‘It got shot,’ he said.”
    “‘Who shot your plane?’”
    “James made a disgusted face. ‘The Japanese!’ he said, with indignation…”

    “Next, little James unnerved his father by telling him: ‘I knew you would be a good daddy, that’s why I picked you.’”
    “‘Where did you find us?’ asked a shaken Bruce.”
    “‘In Hawaii, at the pink hotel, on the beach,’ he replied. Eerily, he described his parents’ fifth wedding anniversary – five weeks before Andrea got pregnant – saying it was when he ‘chose’ them to bring him back into the world.”

    Happy Anniversary Todd and Sarah Palin!
