Any color would do... I just LOVED that red dress that a pp posted. Thanks for that! When I was young (way back in the 70s) I wanted to get married in black. My friends thought I was just too weird... now they finally have the kind of dress I would of loved here I never got married so the point is moot LOL -Kolleen

Comment on the action, not the person. After all we have unconditional love for our children ;-) That was a good throw Eating that food makes you strong Nice stance (for standing) You'll find more in Whole Child/Whole Parent by Polly Beriend Berends Great topic btw ;-) -Kolleen
I don't warn people, I used to, but it's not worth the fall-out. When my kid was young I did ask other people so I would keep my son from them.

It's sending a message that without it, you are not good enough. I can understand that you do not want your daughter to be exposed to this mindset so early in life. They get enough exposure later on. -Kolleen

Even a ADD support group would be helpful. I'm not sure if you're religious, but a lot of those type of institutions have support groups. If you can't find one, how about creating a circle for women in your house once a month? I understand how...
