Mayim Bialik: Attachment Parenting Is Not To Blame For My Divorce

Despite speculation that Mayim Bialik's divorce was caused by attachment parenting -- the controversial style of parenting she and estranged Michael Stone practice -- the actress confirmed on Tuesday that her parenting style had nothing to do with the split.

"There's all sorts of marriages, people break up for all sorts of reasons. We don't need to blame attachment parenting for this one," Bialik told Good Morning America

She went on to say that attachment parenting may have actually helped her two sons cope with her divorce.

"I think in a positive way it makes them very amenable to understanding the complexities of human relationships. People have said, 'Wow you've done like an attachment parenting divorce,'" she added.

This isn't the first time Bialik has stated that attachment parenting had nothing to do with her divorce. In the announcement she posted to her blog in November 2012, she wrote that divorce is something faced by every type of parent.

"The hands-on style of parenting we practice played no role in the changes that led to this decision; relationships are complicated no matter what style of parenting you choose," she wrote.

Bialik and Stone married in 2003, and Bialik filed for divorce in Novemeber 2012. The two share custody of their children.
