One woman quoted in the Times piece recalls the extreme measures a former friend took as a new mom:
"She practiced total attachment parenting. She never let anyone watch her baby. To go to a movie, she and her husband would go one after the other. If it was cold out, she’d bring the car seat into the house and warm it with a blow-dryer" before bringing it back to the car. When the child was older, she said, "you weren’t allowed to say no to him. You weren’t allowed to set boundaries. We were at our wits' end."
Does this sound like anyone you know (or thought you knew)? Tell us whether extreme approaches to parenting have affected your adult friendships.
