Happy Independence Day

To all of my American readers, happy 4th of July!

I’ve mentioned before that I am an email subscriber to the “Daily Groove.” “Written for “leading-edge” parents, The Daily Groove brings you an inspiring and/or practical (and short) message every Monday through Friday.” I like each one of the messages (and strongly encourage all AP-parents to sign up), and often feel like sharing them on my blog each day, but I restrain myself. 😉 However since I need something Independence Day-related today and this fits right in – here ya go! 🙂

:: Independence Day for (R)evolutionary Parents ::

Parents who practice attachment parenting are often
accused of neglecting their children’s development
of independence.

Strangely, these accusations usually come from the
same folks who advise us to take swift disciplinary
action the moment our children exhibit signs of
independence, now re-labeled “disobedience.”

Thankfully, we have the reassurance of the Founding
Mothers and Fathers of holistic parenting whose
“spoiled” kids are growing up to be remarkably

Today is Independence Day in America, so let’s write
our own Declaration of Independence from the culture
of alienation:

“We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all
Children are created Lovable, that they are endowed,
by their Creator, with certain unalienable Rights,
that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Happiness
of Parental Proximity. . . .”

  1. Thanks for reminding me that I needed to sign up again for the Daily Groove. I forgot Scott was switching to a new mailing list service, and I’ve been so busy I haven’t been on email as much. I didn’t know so many folks subscribed to him!
