I've been away for a few months following the birth of my (supposed to be a daughter, but SURPRISE!) son. Since entering parenthood, I've now been
exposed to the world of "parenting philosophies", and I thought it may be fun to see what other peoples strategies for raising their kids are.
Now, I work in publishing, and I personally know of two parenting books made up on the fly following some market research and a well paid endorsement,
so I'm pretty skeptical of all the books out there. The only parenting book I've read out of the many laying on my bookshelf is "Bringing Up
Bèbè", which is interesting in that, the author chronicles her adaptation from an "American" style of parenting to a "French" style.
Culturally, I'm neither, so I really liked the window it provided.
My parenting philosophy, and my kid is 11 weeks old, so it's basically eat, poop, sleep, repeat at this stage is : I love you, I clothe you, I feed
you, now go to bed when I tell you.
Does anyone here follow a strict "philosophy" of parenting though? How is it working for you? What are the benefits and challenges?
Just a fun chit chat thread to come back to.
