Wanted to watch it forever and really enjoyed it. Pregnant couple travelling to meet different people from their past to figure out how to parent and where to stay. One set is a professor living and proposing continuum parenting being against strollers: why would I push my baby away from me? While I was smiling about this I googled the movement andstumbled over this text:
Liedloff discusses many anti-social behaviors that she believes have their root cause in a lack of closeness and continuum parenting during infancy. She believes that a baby deprived of closeness and movement will grow up into an adult who is constantly living with a feeling of lacking something, which causes him to seek out relationships and activities that approximate the feelings of passivity and contentment enjoyed by a baby being carried constantly by his mother, such as heroin addiction, unhealthy marriages or roller coaster rides.
...which made me even more smile... - especially about roller coaster rides. No clue how much my parents carried me around but I can say I am definitely not addicted to roller coaster rides and never thought about it from this angle either. But I highly recommend watching the movie if you are parenting or planning on parenting. And did I mention I love John Krasinski especially in this movie (and why would Rachel pick Dex over Ethan?) and love watching their relationship. Girl flick.
Optimistic, curious, human bee.
