april 2012 – parenting styles

This PAIL monthly theme post was originally hosted by Elphaba at Yolk (aka Alice in Diaperland) on April 17, 2012.

What kind of parent am I or do I want to be? If you’re already a parent, what kinds of things work for you now? Did they always? Has your view of what kind of parent you are changed? If you’re pregnant or TTC, have you given this topic much thought? What is your style likely to be? Are you a structure sort of person? Will you or did you cry-it-out? Will you or did you try to get your baby on a schedule? Did you or will you demand feed? Did you or will you subscribe to a method like Attachment Parenting or Babywise or some other method? Do you think you can spoil a baby by holding it too much?

  2. […] car seats, cribs, strollers, play yards, highchairs and what not. But not really anything else. The PAIL monthly theme in April made me think  about how little I researched. So many bloggers had read this book or that. I have […]
