Mayim Bialik: Attachment Parenting Is Not To Blame For My Divorce
News from Huffington Post:

Despite speculation that Mayim Bialik’s divorce was caused by attachment parenting — the controversial style of parenting she and estranged Michael Stone practice — the actress confirmed on Tuesday that her parenting style had nothing to do with the split.

“There’s all sorts of marriages, people break up for all sorts of reasons. We don’t need to blame attachment parenting for this one,” Bialik told

Co-Parenting: 5 Steps to Avoiding Conflict Escalation
News from Huffington Post:

It goes without saying that we all want what’s best for our children. Unfortunately, trouble arises when what’s best for our children has multiple meanings. Conflicts often escalate between divorced co-parents, when one parent wants to rear the child one way, and the other parent wants to rear the child a different way… often a diametrically opposed way. Since these differences in child-rearing were likely also contributing factors to the demise of the marriage in the first place, it’s not surprising to see them continue post-divorce. So, what are divorced parents to do? How can they co-parent and co-raise their children, when they don’t see eye-to-eye? Is a trip to the local courthouse the answer, when Mom wants Billy to play soccer and Dad wants Billy to play piano? Is it really necessary to run up attorney…………… continues on Huffington Post

Dating, divorce, and different parenting styles

Dating, divorce, and different parenting styles
News from Boston Globe:

Q. I have been dating my boyfriend for almost nine months. We have a great time when we are together. He’s funny, smart, educated, successful, handsome . . . all the things I always wanted in a partner. We have many things in common, except we have drastically different parenting styles. We both have children and it is here where we clash.

Well, “clash” might be the wrong word since I don’t often get the opportunity to interact with his children. I have been divorced for over five years and my kids and I are very well adjusted in our lives. My boyfriend, however, has been divorced for only two years and it was a bitter, nasty divorce. He continues to fight constantly with his ex and his kids seem to be very volatile and unsettled. Add to that his very unstructured parenting style (which is 180 degrees from my parenting style) and we have some fundamental issues. He admits to compartmentalizing me in his life and feeling uncomfortable parenting in his style while I am around. I have tried very hard to be supportive while not offering too much (unwanted) advice. But whatever we are doing is not working. I don’t see how we could ever blend our families, as they are just too different, and I honestly wouldn’t do that to my children (i.e. upset the harmony we currently have).

My boyfriend and I have great love and respect for each other, and like I said, when…………… continues on Boston Globe

Mallette has been promoting her book “Nowhere But Up” for teenagers, but has remained tight lipped about her 19-year-old son who has been facing scrutiny in the media. Bieber has been making headlines for his alleged reckless driving habits, aggressive behavior and marijuana use for months.

However, Mallette is not quick to address her son’s personal behavior while making her media rounds.

“He wants me to continue to respect his boundaries and my relationship with him,” Mallette said in The Advertiser report. “Everybody has their own opinion and everybody wants to sensationalise everything.”

Still, the Christian mother who had Bieber when she was a teenager spoke about her approach to parenting concerning her son.

Parenting and pot: Colorado divorce lawyers’ perspective on marijuana …
News from Denver Post:

It might be legal to smoke marijuana in Colorado, but how does that affect custody issues and other family disputes? (Getty Images file)

Jake and Emily Smith have three children: Kristin, age 9, Austin, age 7, and Olivia, age 4. The Smiths (a hypothetical family for the sake of this commentary) appear to be the perfect family — happily married for 12 years, a stay-at-home mom, a lovely suburban home, two shiny new cars, and cute kids.

There’s only one problem: Three to four nights a week, Jake quietly steps into the backyard or the basement to smoke a joint. Emily has never approved of his marijuana use, and as the children get older, she has increasing concerns about their exposure to Jake.

Jake says: “What’s the big deal, honey? It’s legal in Colorado now. You don’t hear me complaining when you have a few glasses of wine after dinner.”

The final straw comes when Jake decides to make some extra money to pay down credit card bill…………… continues on Denver Post

Did Attachment Parenting Contribute to Mayim Bialik’s Divorce?

Did Attachment Parenting Contribute to Mayim Bialik’s Divorce?
News from TIME:

Imeh Akpanudosen/Stringer / Getty Images Entertainment

Far be it from us at Family Matters to issue judgment on a person’s undoubtedly excruciating decision to divorce. For days, we’ve refrained from weighing in on actress Mayim Bialik’s announcement that she and her husband are calling it quits, cleaving her famously assembled attachment-parenting unit in two.

But two things made us realize that Bialik’s divorce announcement is ripe for the parsing: she is already in the public eye as a celebrity, where famous people’s choices are picked apart every day. And she has also been an outspoken and ardent advocate of attachment parenting, extolling the child-first virtues of this intense style of up-close-and-personal, wear-your-baby, breastfeed-until-middle-school approach to raising kids in a blog and a book she released earlier this year.

In other words, it seems fair game to wonder whether her parenting practices had anything to do with the demise of her

Making a case for old-fashioned parenting
News from Chicago Tribune:

From the title alone, you can probably guess that John Rosemond’s new book, “Parent-Babble: How Parents Can Recover from Fifty Years of Bad Expert Advice” (Andrews McMeel Publishing), isn’t going to bring deafening cheers from the psychological community.

He doesn’t care; he’s more interested in getting a message out.

“I’ve been somewhat of an iconoclast for some time now,” said Rosemond, who has been a licensed family psychologist for 40 years but these days devotes his time to writing, lecturing and generally stirring things up.

Rosemond believes that the changing society of the 1960s, when old methods were challenged and often rejected, led to a breakdown in parenting.

As a result, kids today, Rosemond says, are ill-behaved, impolite, beset with emotional problems and not as happy as kids were back in the 1950s. They’re a mess.

“I realized in the late ’70s, early ’80s that a, psychological teaching was inadequate to explain human behavior, and b, a lot of theories proposed at that time were unsupported by research,” he said recently from California, where he was speaking to several parents groups.

Rosemond’s solution is a return to the child-raising strategies of 50 years ago. That’s not what the authors of hundreds of contemporary “how to raise your kids” books might have in mind.

Mayim Bialik Announces Divorce From Husband Michael Stone

Mayim Bialik Announces Divorce From Husband Michael Stone
News from Us Magazine:

All that attachment parenting may be beneficial for Mayim Bialik’s two kids, but it doesn’t seem to have helped her marriage. On Wednesday, it was announced that “The Big Bang Theory” actress split from her husband of nine years, Michael Stone, citing “irreconcilable differences.” On the Jewish parenting website Kveller.com, the 36-year-old was adamant that her style of parenting — her sons Miles, 7, and Fred, 4, sleep in the same bed as she and Stone — played no part in the split. “Relationships are complicated no matter what style of parenting you choose,” wrote Bialik.

In August, the former “Blossom” star told omg! that because of their parenting practices there was “an extra challenge” to find alone time with her husband, whom she met in college, and that the two had not “been on a proper evening date in seven years.” When talking about the many misconceptions of attachment parenting, she ackno…………… continues on Us Magazine

Study: Pregnant teens need better school support
News from Fox News:

When 15-year-old Kali Gonzalez became pregnant, the honors student considered transferring to an alternative school. She worried teachers would harass her for missing class because of doctor’s appointments and morning sickness.

A guidance counselor urged Gonzalez not to, saying that could lower her standards.

Instead, her counselor set up a meeting with teachers at her St. Augustine high school to confirm she could make up missed assignments, eat in class and use the restroom whenever she needed. Gonzalez, who is now 18, kept an A-average while pregnant. She capitalized on an online school program for parenting students so she could stay home and take care of her baby during her junior year. She returned to school her senior year and graduated with honors in May.

But Gonzalez is a rare example of success among pregnant students. Schools across the country are divided over how to handle them, with some schools kicking them out or penalizing students for pregnancy-related absences. And many schools say they can’t afford costly support programs, including tutoring, child care and transportation for teens who may live just a few miles from school but still too far to walk while pregnant or with a small child.

Nearly 400,000 girls and young women between 15 and 19 years old gave birth in 2010, a rate of 34 per 1,000, according to the Centers for…………… continues on Fox News

‘Blossom’ actress, ‘attachment parenting’ advocate Mayim Bialik to divorce …
News from Washington Post:

LOS ANGELES — Mayim Bialik is splitting from her husband of nine years.

The 36-year-old actress says in a statement posted online Wednesday that she and husband Michael Stone have decided to divorce. The couple has two young sons.

Bialik recently released a book about attachment parenting, but says the philosophy that encourages forming close bonds with near-constant physical contact played no role in the couple’s split.

The Emmy-nominated star of CBS’ ”The Big Bang Theory” says “relationships are complicated no matter what style of parenting you choose.”

She says divorce is “terribly sad, painful and incomprehensible” for children and adds that the couple’s sons remain their priority.

Bialik first gained fame as the star of the 1990s sitcom “Blossom.” She holds a doctoral degree in neuroscience from UCLA, specializing in obsessive-compulsive disorder in adolescents.
