Quoting Cheeks mom:" I just think that as parents and as adults we should push ourselves to make the best decisions we can ... [snip!] ... my kid my decision" is a great way to shut down any kind of productive conversation. And now I'm gonna hop off my soap box"
Agree with every bit of that.
I appreciate people willing to say this or that is wrong (even if what they are doing is saying that what *I* do is wrong, at least they are willing to talk about it). It is how I started to untangle a lot of my ideas about parenting & life - because there were things I had ideas about that *I* didn't even know what they were based in or where they came from. And this was before I had kids - so I also hate when I hear someone on here act as if women who don't have kids yet don't have valid opinions or shouldn't debate certain topics. It is what got me prepped for having kids. It made me deconstruct most of my preconceived ideas & realize I wanted to understand more.
