You will LOVE this Dr. Seussian poem by Anktangle outlining all 8 principles of Attachment Parenting! Funny and touching.
For instance, this is Feed With Love and Respect:
When you feed me, Mama, dear:
How? And where? Do let me hear!
I’ll feed you—nurse you—anywhere!

You’ll feed yourself soon, not too long.
I nourish, fill you.
Mom, I am.
