Give parental instinct a chance

I read an article recently entitled ‘Attachment parenting: the best way to raise a child – or maternal masochism?’ - (Hadley Freeman, the Guardian 30/8/16). This article has a  critical focus on attachment parenting, (attachment theory relates in short, to how a baby will attach to an adult carer – usually the mother/parents/grandparents- for security, food, care and love) and describing it as the new fashionable approach in the West towards baby rearing.
