Parenting Peace


I read MetroDad's post yesterday on Chilled-Out Parenting and have to say "Hooray!" There is enough trauma and hard work involved raising children that we don't need to generate "Mommy Wars." MetroDad writes, "Personally, I think all of these so-called parenting controversies are really just symptomatic of people having too much free time on their hands."

Our Moms Group has been terrific. (I say "Moms" because the class where we met was for new mothers, but SwingDaddy has been just as involved as I have.) We have breastfed for different lengths of time, some of us still rock our babies to sleep, others do CIO, some are stay-at-home moms, others work in the office full-time, so on and so forth. Everyone's been pretty open minded and always supportive. Can't take that for granted!
