How different is your parenting from the way your parents or mom raised you?
Quoting jellyphish:Polar opposites
Very. My mom was mainstream and in the 80s so it was formula, cribs, CIO. She's great now though about "know better, do better". My dad was more "crunchy" as he was a farmer but he passed away before dd was born - I'd like to think he would have appreciated what I'm doing though.
Very, and she looks at my choices as a personal attack on her own parenting style. It's irritating.

Oh gosh! WAY different... there was no reseaching anything back then though. She pretty much had to go on what doctors said. I think we all are better parents today because of computers and researching. IMO.
