yeah, that's the thing. I would lose myself if I parented the way that works best for some people's families. And I know of many people who could never parent the way I do.

it'd be nice if there was a single way that worked for everyone, but there's just not. Although, it appears that in some other countries, there is. But, here in the ol' melting pot, we just can't agree enough for that.
