The latest Skeptical Parenting Crossing is up at Clashing Culture! Take a look at what’s on the parenting front of the parents who believe in examining the evidence behind the myriad of parenting information rather than relying on hearsay.
When I first started this blog, it was purely to keep friends and family up to date on what was happening with my pregnancy and the developments of my first child. It quickly became evident that new parents are magnets for parenting advice – both solicited and unsolicited and from known and unknown sources. Wading through the garbage to get to the gold nuggets meant making the added effort to research what had been tried and tested and separating it from the “old wives tales” which were at best ineffective, and at worst harmful!
The discovery of Skeptical Parenting Crossing was a pleasant exposure to experienced, like-minded parents who not only question the “hand-me-down” parenting advices but even those from the experts’ camp. Being a part of this carnival has helped me learn a lot about parenting not only through my own limited experiences but through that of the Skeptical Parenting network.
Next month’s Skeptical Parenting Crossing will be hosted on Babylicious, so be sure to submit your blog posts before May 21!
