  3. Gentle Discipline
    I'm a big fan of Alfie Kohn and I really try to avoid punishment in any circumstance. I say "try to" because I don't intentionally punish but life seems to punish from time to time and it isn't always practical or possible to stop it, and I feel like by not intervening more there's still some...
  4. Parenting
    I don't like The Giving Tree.<br><br> There, I admitted it. People say it's a story of love, but it seems like some kind of dysfunctional relationship with a martyr to me. I just don't like it.<br><br> What children's books do you dislike?

    <p>Brominated vegetable oil, olestra, food coloring, BHA and BHT: sound familiar? Most of us try to avoid these types of food additives anyway, but did you know that they are banned in many other countries as not safe for human consumption?</p> <p> </p> <p><a...

  8. Learning at School
    I'm learning that this is a heated topic, so let's keep the responses civil. <img alt="hide.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/hide.gif"> Could some of you educate me a little on the Common Core? There's a lot about it online, but I'm interested in hearing...

  10. Homebirth
    <p>I have had a homebirth with my second and absolutely loved it.  My CPM was great and I delivered fast.  My 3rd was delivered in the hospital again for insurance purposes and I butted heads with all the hospital staff there when I showed up to deliver (I showed up an hour and a half before...
