    1. I know, I know. I said I wouldn't read another parenting book for a while, but I started this one before Jude was born and I was looking for a little something to stimulate my thinking about being a dad.And now this one is not a bad book, per se. Newton uses scientific proof to back up her claims, and I honestly believe in the core ideas here (as I believe in the core ideas of Attachment Parenting, period). I did learn a few things, too. But I'm just tired of reading parenting books and having t [...]


    2. Great book on how to foster a secure, healthy attachment between child and parent. Based on the science of attachment theory and written from a developmental perspective. Unlike "attachment parenting" books, this one isn't about breastfeeding, co-sleeping, and baby wearing. It's great if those things work for your family, but even if you are formula feeding and stroller pushing mom in heels, this is an awesome resource. You'll learn about why attachment matters, what healthy and unhealthy attach [...]


    3. This is a lovely book about how parents stimulate their young children's brains to develop properly by giving them love and attention. It's well written, factual, and not at all prescriptive. The author reiterates that we only need to be "good enough" to help our babies blossom into confident, healthy individuals, and she has a lot of compassion for parents and children alike. Reading this has changed the way I look at my relationship with my toddler: I'm now aware of what a secure emotional and [...]


    4. I bought this book hoping it would discuss evidence for "attachment parenting" (babywearing, co-sleeping, etc.) but instead it discussed how attachment theory applies to parents. They're two different things so I was a little disappointed. Attachment theory is the one that found four different attachment styles--secure, insecure, ambivalent, and avoidant. Securely attached children use their parent as a base to explore the world around them in an unfamiliar situation. The book stressed how impor [...]


    5. Very useful book for parents, primary caregivers and even childcare providers. The crux of the message I took away is primary caregivers need to help up-regulate positive emotions and help down-regulate difficult/negative emotions. Helping children do this is the foundation of secure children. It breaks down the different developmental stages and offers lots of practical advice on how best to support children based on the developmental stage.


    6. Perhaps a good resource for very new parents. However, as the parent of a kid who turns two next month, I find it gives only the most vague overview of development of older toddlers/preschoolers.



    7. Great easily acceptable read for parent/ individuals who want to gain an insight into Attachment theory.


    8. This is a very accessible book for parents and others who are interested in how to raise secure children using the knowledge gleaned from attachment theory research. Contains an extensive bibliography.


    9. This book seems to be very scientific at first but in reality it does show the skimpiness of attachment research. However, I do think the author has a good instincts in reading family environments. I thought her observations of the seeming indifference of less attached children in the classical attachment experiment was very on point. While these children appeared outwardly calm in reality their heart rate increased when the mother came back into the room after a planned absence and they also av [...]


    10. As I become a parent, I wanted to learn more about attachment theory and practical ways to incorporate this theory into my parenting. This book gives a lot of great case studies, lists of developmental benchmarks by ages, and concrete actions for creating secure attachment without making it seem that there is a "right way" and a "wrong way" to parent. This book instead suggests many simple ways to bond with a child and have a strong and secure emotional connection with your child. I also appreci [...]


    11. I thought this book was really great in terms of breaking tdown the way that parenting contributes to brain development. I have a child who missed out on getting her needs met as a young child so it was helpful to better understand what she missed out on and what sort of effect that had on her development. I also have a toddler and I appreciated getting to better understand why what we do is helpful and what we could be doing more of. I also like that this author automatically assumes that most [...]


    12. Good, straightforward book that focus more on the 'why's' of attachment parenting than the 'how's'. Personally I like learning about neuro connections and attachment theory, but if you are looking for something more instructive, then I recommend you read one of Dr. Sear's books. This is a clear overview of the importance of attachment parenting though, so it might be good as a book that you read and relay information from it to your non reading partner. Plenty of interested ideas and anecdotes t [...]


    13. Don't get lost!I do not come from a background in psychology (since this is the language of this book), but the findings on attachment and ones development is astonishing, if you don't have children great because you need to learn a bit about yourself and your partner before you embark on the adventure of parenthood. I use to joke and say that people need licences and special classes for exotic animals, yet there is no requirement for the creation and raising of a human being.


    14. An excellent look at early brain development and the effect of parental attunement on a child's emotional regulation. Grounded in solid and widely accepted research, this book does not delve into parenting controversies (sleep schedules, cosleeping, etc), but provides great information on how to help your child become secure and confident, with a solid sense of self, relationality, and empathy that will foster healthy relationships throughout life.


    15. I was looking for a book about the science of attachment parenting (babywearing, cosleeping, etc.) when I found this. It turned out to be about attachment theory. Attachment theory explores how babies bond with their caregivers and what effect the quality of the bond has on their neurological development. It was an interesting read so I finished it anyway, but I wanted to warn other people who might make the same mistake.


    16. This author is so high on her self. She puts down any other kind of parenting. Even if you don't agree with other forms there are good and bad in every kind of parenting. Don't say that just because you don't do attachment you suck as a parent and your child is going to have so many issues


    17. Given the author's work with the homeless population, I believe this book reaches out to a wider audience than the securely attached parent-child, giving cases of children of neglect & abuse. While I read the entire book and was able to take a couple of ideas, I did not relate.


    18. This is a decent book. I think the biggest drawback is that it is really only intended for younger children and the marketing does not convey that. Good if you have younger children, not very helpful if your children are intermediate or above.


    19. Thought this would have more clear guidelines supported with studies or observations. Got bogged down in the scientific aspects and human stories that seem to cloud the overall agenda. Guess my son will be a mamma's boy afterall.


    20. It gives some good, easy ideas on how to strengthen attachment for any parent to use at different developmental ages of children. It also simply explains what attachment is and why it is important.


    21. Fabulous book describing the process of development in a child of attaching (or not) with the care-giver. Must read for everyone!!


    22. Discusses development from newborn to four years with case studies. Got a little boring as it reads like a textbook but good info.


    23. Explained attachment well with interesting case studies and included brain research. Quite straight forward, easy to read, now just have to put it into practice!


    24. Has a good overview of some of the neuroscience behind attachment theory. Also goes over milestones through the 4th year



    25. Interesting, but not that useful. I found a lot of the examples to be extreme situations that I have trouble relating to.
