personally it would be taste that drove me to trash it.
Anyone want to lay out their parenting style? I would love to see how others describe their personal philosophies and ideals if anyone wants to share! If the thread takes off I will share mine, too

I was hoping to get more from this thread, but for some reason none of the explanations have hit the nail on the head for me. I am more recently considering these issues as dd is just now 2 and up until now I was more in the "mothering-a-baby-mode".

Spending a lot less time with my mom has actually improved my self esteem a lot and made me a happier person. Your confidence and feelings about yourself can get clouded when you always have someone telling you that you're wrong or that nobody else feels that way, as...
