Update: Alicia Silverstone is being scrutinized after she revealed her parenting style to the word on a podcast.
A parenting expert has come forward to claim her overly attached parenting style can lead to “boundary issues.”
Psychologist Reena B. Patel said Silverstone should have stopped sleeping with her son when he was five years old.
‘When a child begins to question the difference in genders, hits puberty and or starts to show discomfort is when to stop. It can be as early as five years of age,’ Patel told DailyMail.com.
She went on to say the attachment style parenting can lead to a reduced amount of “exploration freedom a child receives, can create co-dependence, may limit independent skill development and can lead to challenges in other relationships.”
July 20 – The actress from the hit 1990s film, “Clueless,” opened up about parenting her 11-year-old son during a podcast interview on Tuesday.
Alicia Silverstone, 45, revealed she still sleeps with her son, Bear, during “The Ellen Fisher Podcast” and even joked she might “get in trouble for” revealing it.
“I don’t really care,” Silverstone said.
She revealed her “attachment parenting style” included “elimination communication” tactics which required very close supervision of her son.
“It’s so awesome. It’s so easy,” she said. “When I was done feeding him, he would go to the bathroom in the toilet. When he woke up from a nap, he went to the bathroom.
“There was a period of time where I was watching him naked and watching the cues,” she added. “The cues part for me was really fun because I thought that he was flirting with me because he would do this little smile. That’s when he had to pee.”
She claims her son’s father originally thought her parenting methods were “hippie s–t,” but eventually came around and “loved” them.
Silverstone has been vocal about her parenting style in the past, and has not shame in bathing with her son and feeding him a vegan diet.
“I’m a natural mama, and I’m a loving mama. I believe in love, I believe in nature and our society is scared of nature and love.”
