"Oh, you're STILL nursing?" to "Oh, you only nursed for 12 months?" "Isn't it dangerous to let your child sleep with you?" to "You own a crib?" Parents, especially AP parents, deal with a lot of criticism, or at least second guessing. Whether it comes from family members, peers (parents who have chosen other parenting methods or other AP parents whose choices don't perfectly match your own), or from your internal voice, criticism is not easy to deal with. Amid all of this, there are ways to cope, keep our focus on our children, and even to move beyond the criticism to advocate and educate others about our choices.
