It might help you to buy some different parenting book, so you can draw from the pool of others experiences. Unfortunately, we, as humans, tend to have a hard time grasping, or coming to terms with things we haven't experienced. . . especially when it comes to raising children. It might be a help, to draw from different peoples opinions, and experiences, and conclusions, to give yourself a bit of direction (all be it theoretical) in raising your own son. Just because you were done one way, doesn't mean you have to follow suit, as I"m sure you know, there is such a wealth of rescources these days, it makes the journey just a bit less harrowing.
