This board was very difficult to name and traditional parenting means different things to different people. Do you think the boards name should be changed and if so to what?

Hi there!

First, I was the one to post about the 'issue' on the AP board about the 'traditional' name for our board.

I LOVE the name 'traditional parenting' for our board and when i first saw the poll, i was thinking we may be asked for suggestions, and my first thought was '70's parenting. heehee.

I also love the name for the board of 'old school parenting'. I believe no one could really find anything to pick apart in that name, and in my mind, that name is traditional and right on!!!!!

however, just to be a troublemaker the AP board needs to alter it's name too!!! we are all attached to our children-- born, not yet to be born, stepchildren, pets, etc!!!!!! NO MATTER how we choose to raise them!

I also have some personal issues with the term "Attatchment Parenting". I agree with amyla in the sense that I am completely attatched to my daughter, but I do not co-sleep or bf. I do, however, realize that this is not a JM term, rather a term widely used to describe the parenting practices of those who co-sleep, br.feed, cloth diaper, and wear their babies. I would be fine with a name change, and don't understand why it was called attatchment parenting in the first place, but for the sake of confusion I wouldn't expect the ap board to change their name.

I like traditional parenting as the title...I think it referres more to the sleeping habits rather than anything else!

I know it was really hard for the admins to name this board. Unfortionately, I am not sure of any suggestions. Old School Parenting may not be right because those who cloth diaper may feel that is old school. Mainstream is a possibility.....but it just doesn't sound right to me.

I also agree about the attachment issue. I am already attached to my baby and I am not even out of the first trimester yet. Maybe it could be Attachment/ Blank Parenting and ours can be Traditional/Blank Parenting.

Sorry, right now I am drawing a blank about what to put in place of the blanks (no pun intended)

I think that we need to leave the board name as it is. I really do not see why the AP ladies are fussing over it. It is just a name.

I too think you should leave the name. I think it fits.

Personally, I don't care what it's called. I'm just grateful to have a place to go where other mommies think the same way I do.

I like Traditional Parenting or Mainstream Parenting. I love that someone thought of having this board, I kind was annoyed that in the attachement paretning board their views were so different than mine, i'm totally attached to my kids, i'm with them 24/7, but I don't "wear" them, nurse anymore, cloth diaper, etc.... This board is a great one, i'm so glad someone thought of it!!!

You're right. It's name is based on attachment theory.

Wow. I have no idea how that happened, wasn't even done...that was me. Anyhow, I personally believe in it, but just because you don't doesn't mean you're not attached to/don't love your child and vice versa. All of us do what we feel is best for our child(ren) and that's all that matters...that is love.
