Is the increasingly fashionable approach of Attachment parenting the right way to raise a child

I think it depends on the circumstances and values within the family. From a pragmatic perspective, I first came across a woman breastfeeding a 4 year old child when I worked in a womens hostel. Her child stood next to her chair breastfeeding while we held a case conference about him. She explained that she had a very low income, so breastfeeding the youngest children for as long as possible helped with her household budget. This is the case in most poor countries around the world. The same with beds - why spend money on separate beds when a family can share one big one? From a values perspective, it is up to the family what values they want to use as a basis for family life. If people believe that attachment parenting creates loving and sharing individuals then there are worse values to have in our supposedly liberal society. It also depends on the individual child - some want to be close while others strike out for early independence. It is up to the parents to take note of their childrens individual needs and act accordingly. I dont know why so many people are bothered about it, so long as the parents are putting their childrens needs first and adapting what they do as their children grow older.

Patriotism: What it really means?

Patriotism is ones emotional attachment to the homeland. Despite its definition, Patriotism has a wide canvas of value, beliefs and responsibilities. Examples of patriotism lie from a soldier sacrificing his life for the nation to a common man fighting the urge to litter the streets. In simple words, a true patriot is the one which upholds the ideals of the country and possesses true dedication to his/her duty towards the homeland. While drawing the line between patriotism and jingoism, there are two things worth noting. Firstly, people speaking against the status quo or the incumbent government cannot be termed unpatriotic i.e. being anti-government is not synonymous to being anti-national. Secondly, Showering accolades over the heritage, history, bravery is not the only way to depict ones patriotic feelings. A person saying he is ashamed of his country or expressing his fear over the present situation of the nation, cannot be branded as a traitor. On the contrary, a true patriot will internalise the criticism, respecting the ideals of our democracy, and work towards filling the gaps in the value system of the society A patriot is not just a person expressing his pride in his nation, but the one who has the courage to find faults in it, speak freely against it, and act towards rectifying the faults. Expressing ones shame towards ones own country does not mean that he or she hates the country but is apprehensive about the actions of few sections of the society and inability of State to act against them.
