How would you describe your style of parenting?

Someone asked me this the other day. Attachment parenting sums it up really.

Attachment parenting assumes, rather simply, that children are people too and deserve to have their needs met. Attachment parenting is not about being physically attached to your offspring at tall times. As attached parents we aim to listen to our small people and give their needs a high level of respect and action, for example we don't leave our babies to cry behind closed doors because they "should be sleeping through"... whatever that means. Babies cry because they have needs. Parents must address those needs to ensure babies are happy. It's that simple.
