Re: I wanted to PLUG my ears!!!
Sorry you had to hear that, mama. I would have said something, too.
I find that many people who quote some book they read, don't know empirically valid research from their *ss.
I speak up and offer to forward valid research sources to back up my own personal experiences. In addition, I always like to acknowledge parenting methods that I myself mistakenly applied in the past. Life is a journey and we learn as we go.
Nothing infuriates me more than when a parent seems more concerned with their own wants and conveniences than the care and well being of their child. I always want to ask, "Who forced you to have a child?"
