I don't care. I raised 5 fabulous, loving, trustworthy, intelligent, beautiful kids on my own - if that's parenting the wrong way then I'm sticking with being wrong! I know I have made mistakes, believe me, but its about priorities and the big picture. I pick my battles and keep my eye on the ultimate outcome - how they will turn out as adults.
I have no problem "educating" people who wish to express an opinion on my parenting style! But I don't preach to anyone unless they start it
Hi! Im sort of lurking (I havent had a home birth, due to insurance, however Ive had natural, med free births) It does bother me. Esp when I am given advice by people who werent great parents. One of these ladies even tried to say they were calling cps because she didnt think we were good parents. (This was coming from a person who chose drugs over her children for a period of time) So that really hurt... because I wondered what had we done wrong for her to say that!? Apparently it was because we put our kids on time out and because I was teaching my one and half old to help out. (Put his plate in the sink using his little step stool, throwing his diapers away (after he was changed) or throwing things in the garbage when asked, just little things that we made a game of like helping me put away toys or getting toys for his nb brother) But you really cant ket it botheryou, I try to remember that I am raising them to grow into respectful, kindhearted, helpful, "strong" adults... and everytime I see them using their manners, helping out, sharing and being kind to others, I know Im doing something right.
