Beyond the Sling--- a Giveaway!

I am sure most have you have read this awesome interview I did with fellow Jewish home-schooling mom, Neuroscientist and actress Mayim Bialik a few months ago.

Although we have never met in person, just corresponding with Mayim via e-mail and reading her blog posts on Kveller.com, she is someone I truly admire. She is such a proud Jewess and is so open and honest about her personal journey in Yiddishkeit.

Yes, she is on a HUGE hit TV show, The Big Bang Theory. Yes, she was the star of the HUGE hit TV show, Blossom. She goes to the Emmy Awards and has Paparazzi snapping photos of her... but what I love about Mayim is that her first and foremost focus is her family, her kids. Which brings me to this fabulous Giveaway which she has so graciously agreed to be a part of.

Beyond the Sling is a book that Mayim wrote about raising and loving kids the Attachment Parenting way.

What I love about how Mayim wrote this book is that she says straight out that not all her solutions will be right for every family. No matter how you birth your baby, feed your baby, carry your baby, or educate your baby, Beyond the Sling goes beyond the labels and perceptions about how certain parenting styles have to look, which I find to be very liberating.

A huge part of Attachment Parenting is about understanding your child’s needs, your needs, and the basics of human development -- an attachment that will stay with you no matter what style of parenting you draw on.

I love many aspects of Attachment Parenting and have incorporated many of them (without even knowing it had a name "Attachment Parenting") into the way we raise our kids. The relationships you develop with your kids is just phenomenal. Its not about the parent being the boss or the disciplinarian. Its about developing this incredible relationship with your kids where there is this trust and mutual respect that is just priceless.

I can go on and on about this book, but let me get to the Giveaway already:)

  24. To me Mayim is a strong character model for all moms to listen to, ask for advice, follow. A woman of many talents the most important of which is no doubt to be a friend for your kids.

    Best regards,

  33. I do agree with Mayim Bialik on the point that all parents were born to be the best parents for their kids. I estimate her input in parenting as that by which we can learn. I'd love to read her book and pick up some ideas for me and my baby.

    Best regards,
    Svetlana

  34. I join Mayim, Mrs. Obama and all other women out there in promoting breastfeeding.Nothing is better for our kids.
    As long as in the country I live in doctors' opinion used to be imposed for decades, I feel lack of knowledge and need to learn how to get free from "dogmas", as for the time being I do that instinctively. That's why I'd love to have this book.

    Sincerely,
    Svetlana

  36. It would be neat to read her book. I have been inspired by a few of her thoughts as she's contributed to kveller. I love that there is a voice out there for all parents trying to be as in tune with their children and those relationships as they can be. Miriam

  37. One of the reasons why I'd love to read this book is that the author has a background in neuroscience, which means Mayim Bialik can see, describe and help us understand basic processes connected closely to breastfeeding, pregnancy and labor. It's an objective look from aside.

  38. Oh my goodness. We love Big Bang Theory in this house. I did not even know she had written a book. I can't wait to read it.

  42. I admire the fact that Mayim does not impose her views on parenting on others, she just suggests certain ways out and describes basic processes from the point of science and her own experience. No matter what paradigm you stick to,you'll find some useful tips for yourself in this book.At least I'd love to!

    Sincerely yours,
    Svetlana
