Mayim Bialik is a sitcom star but she’s also known for her unconventional parenting skills. The Big Bang Theory star is a big believer in attachment parenting. Bialik even wrote a book about it called Beyond the Sling: A Real-Life Guide to Raising Confident, Loving Children the Attachment Parenting Way. She received a lot of negative criticism about the 2012 book and admitted a few years later that she was tired of constantly having to defend herself. “Just because I’m a public person, who happened to have breastfed and slept with her kids, that doesn’t mean that I want to fight with you on the street or in the supermarket,” Bialik said.
