"Drawing on her education as a neuroscientist, her instinct as a mother, and a community of support, Mayim has passionately embraced attachment parenting principles for raising her children. In Beyond the Sling, she shows how the secure attachment relationship that she has developed with her children has given her the confidence to define her own natural parenting style." --Barbara Nicholson and Lysa Parker, co-founders of Attachment Parenting International and co-authors of Attached at the Heart --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
