Honestly I think on a lot of topics it's fine to do whatever works for your family. But is there a better way to disagree when somebody pulls out a complete bull crap of a study that they heard on the internet to back something up? I'm in training to be a community health educator and so I do need to correct information but I just want to know how you would prefer someone went about it?
I really want to know how you would prefer to be corrected because what is a horrible insult to one is just fine to another?
Like I had no idea how to respond in a nice way to a friend who is breastfeeding her older toddler and had to use(and I never commented on her breastfeeding she brought it up) that the worldwide weaning age is 7. It's preposterous since 2/3 of the world's population loses they're ability to digest lactose between the ages of 3-5. But like I said I don't care how long you breastfeed but it's my job to correct information but in this case I walked away because I didn't want to fight over nothing.
But because I'll be speaking basically for the health department on certain somewhat touchy topics including vaccination, HIV, breastfeeding, to a certain extant childbearing in general, contraception, and many more things I can't think of right now.
So since that's a bit long winded to summarize. How would you prefer to have your information corrected?
Please don't just say in a respectful way, I need descriptions.
