Who do you trust more: great professionals or celebrity professionals? The fact that they're celebrities makes them more trusted?

Interesting question. Celebrities usually have a reason that they got that way. Sometimes because they are good and popular and other times because someone thought they could make a lot of money off whatever the celeb is selling. Great Professionals that you see are more personal and know "your' story. 

 

In the beginning of my parenting journey I was more likely to trust my own instincts and have found a couple health care providers that I trust will work with me and my family :)

I don't trust anyone. I read as many sources as possible and form my own opinion.


My advice may not be appropriate for you. That's ok. You are just fine how you are and I am the right kind of me.

I tend to not trust celebrity pro's because I figure their main career is being famous.  They might be brilliant and there are a few celebritites I might truly consider opinions from, but generally I would shy away from them.  Not that I think they're bad people, but I would probably assume their focus is biased in one way or another.
