What is it with these so called ‘experts’? No matter how you raise your child, you are committing a capital sin according to one expert or the other. I
If you use a stroller you are an evil unattached parent yet if you carry your child in a sling all day long you are raising an insecure little creature. Time outs are good, time outs are bad, letting your child self comfort is for the best, self comforting is for cold, uncaring parents only…. oh come on!!! Stop over-analyzing everything and just make sure you help your kids become good people. I
It’s so funny because everyone quotes “studies” that back their “theories”, and it’s just so subjective, I mean us, and our parents were raised very differently and I think most of us turned out quite alright, didn’t we?
The best thing I read lately said that we shouldn’t praise our kids for their accomplishments because it makes them underperform, priceless…
People! Just be kind and fair to your child, lead by example, keep them healthy, and above all… love them. Don’t get stressed by every ‘expert’ you come across!
