Mayim Bialik Talks About Attachment Parenting

Mayim Bialik Takes On Opponents of Attachment Parenting

Mayim Bialik is no stranger to controversy. The Big Bang Theory actress and former Blossom star is quickly becoming the poster child for attachment parenting with the release of her new memoir, Beyond the Sling: A Real-Life Guide to Raising Confident, Loving Children the Attachment Parenting Way, out today. In the book, the mom of two — to Miles, 6, and Frederick, 3 — who holds a PhD in neuroscience, recounts her beliefs in carrying her children for most of their first year (rarely putting them down), breastfeeding on demand (she's nursing her 3-and-a-half-year-old), elimination communication (no diapers after the first year), unschooling, and creating a family bed. Her lifestyle isn't for the faint of heart, and after showing it off on Nightline last night, she's coming under fire.

During her conversation with Juju Chang, she discussed the hostile way parents critique each other's parenting choices, saying, "Women have taken office politics and transported them to our homes and to our social circles. You're either right or you're wrong."

Do you agree with Mayim's assessment of why parents are so quick to criticize?
