Mayim Bialik was the child star of the popular 1990s TV sitcom Blossom, but she didn’t follow the typical child-star trajectory. Instead, Mayim got her PhD in neuroscience from UCLA, married her college sweetheart, and had two kids. Then she did what many new moms do—she read a lot of books, talked with other parents, and she soon started questioning a lot of the conventional wisdom she heard about raising a child. That’s when she turned to attachment parenting. For Mayim, attachment parenting’s natural, child-led approach not only felt right emotionally, it made sense intellectually and instinctually, allowing her to relax into her role as a mother instead of following some rigid parenting script. Drawing on both her experience as a mother and her scientific background, Mayim presents the major tenets and core principles of attachment parenting and how it has become the guiding principle for her family.
