Traditional, Attatched, or something different.

I was raised pretty traditionally, but my dh thinks I'm a little too attatched to my parents at times! LOL!

I think I was raised more traditionally, but I think my mom used cloth diapers and I know she breastfed me. I am pretty sure my mom let me CIO! LOL

My parents and i were just talking about this a few weeks ago. Apparently they believed in the Dr. Spock method of raising babies. Now i've never read about this style myself but they told me that it was very much pro CIO. They told me they followed a bed time routine then put me in my crib to fall asleep. They said the first night i cried for an hour, the second for 45 minutes and on and on down to no crying by the end of the week. I didn't ask them what age they started doing this but i guess i was a good sleeper.

I on the other had could never let my baby cry for an hour, i let him CIO but go check on him every so often. I think the longest i've ever let him cry was about 15 minutes...

I guess I was raised traditionally. I was breast fed, wore disposable diapers, slept in a crib in my own room, except when I was tiny (they had me sleep in a laundry basket...like a bassinet). The only time I crawled into bed with my parents was when I had a bad dream. I have no idea how I turned out so messed up. Go figure!

I was raised 'traditionally'. However, my mom did use cloth diapers and only used disposable ones when they were going out. I guess that was when disposables were still new.

I was bottlefed, etc. I always knew my parents were the boss and I wasn't! I was taught that with adulthood comes certain privledges that children just don't get because they are just that, children. I didn't run the show, I was able to be taken to good restaurants because I KNEW BETTER than to act up, only a look from my mother would stop any misbehavior from me (that is what annoys me about my SO, his son in my SO's words is "not one you can take to dinner". the other night I told him, well MY child will be one we can take to dinner or at least I hope so, i will do everything to try to make that a reality!)

I think I was raised very well. I was incorporated into their lives, they didn't give up everything and lose themselves because they became parents. I hope to do the same.

I was raised pretty much the same. Cloth diapers cuz that was the thing back then (if they had disposable my parents probably couldn't afford them back then). Formula fed, CIO, same with us about the sleeping situation...but slept with mom (only if sick or bad dream) cuz Dad didn't think kids belong in bed with you.

Traditional style, I was formula fed (Mom tried but couldnt breastfeed), they used cloth but had a diaper service, I'm pretty sure I CIO because my mother still uses the old advice of "it's good for their lungs" rolling my eyes on that one.. lol...did not sleep in their bed...I don't ever remember sleeping with them. If I was sick or had a bad dream, Mom slept on the floor in my room next to my bed.

Pretty much traditional, my mom was surprised I wanted to nurse my kids, even though only one of them took to it. My mom doesn't believe in letting a baby scream too long, but she also doesn't think crying will hurt them. Actually, my mom says she's more nervous and worried about it now that she has grandkids, she lives with us, and when I let the kids CIO she has to go in her room and can't bear to hear them cry, but she said it didn't bother her nearly as much when she let us cry...weird!

My oarents were the boss. I got spanked once and never had to again. All it usually took was the "look". LOL! If you aren't the boss in the begnning when exactly do you get control back? Kids are smart, they will know early on if they are allowed to be the boss.

I would have to say a little bit of both...I was BF,wore cloth diapers,my Mom even made our clothes for awhile.I had my own bedroom but it wasnt unusual for me to make a bed on my paerents floor eveynight...or my sister's if my parents said no. The older I got,the more traditional my parents became...good balance,I guess

I was raised very traditional. My mother was very strict and taught me to be independent. My sister on the other hand was raised traditional with attachment.

I thihk that most people over 18 were traditionaly raised. This new thing "attachement Parenting" is women with way to much time on their hands. I always said I would raise my kids the way my mom raised the 5 of us. We are all independent and healthy human beings, we aren't physo because we were spanked a few times. Like many of you said I knew who the boss was and it sure the heck wasn't me... and it won't be my kids!... I appraicate this board and gald to know that I am not the only one who doesn't like/agree with AP.
