I quit my job for more than a year to raise my son, and it was the best decision of my life. Thank goodness I could, it was a sacrifice that affected my professional life as well as my income, but it didn’t matter. I was 24/7 with my boy and that’s what I call attachment parenting: being there for him, nurturing him every step of the way with positivity and support, but not by having him sleep with me or allowing him to roam freely as if he were a wild animal. I teach him. I enforce discipline because I want him to be a kind and well-educated human being with values. I want him to make a positive difference in the world.

My kids will choose the sports and/or instruments they want to play, they will decide what to study and what to wear, and that is enough freedom. Kids need a role model, guidance and schedules. And a whole lot of love!
