The "Drive Yourself Crazy" review below is COMPLETELY WRONG. Obviously the person writing it had no personal experience with attachment parenting but simply theorized that obnoxious kids were the result of attachment parenting which is exactly the opposite. My son was an incredibly well-behaved child who was the opposite of insecure and he's now a high-achieving teenager who was advanced a year in school and is now preparing for a school year abroad.
