So, here’s the deal. I know I give a lot of advice here, and though I may occasionally sound like I know what I’m talking about, there are a few things you should know.
First, you should always do what you feel like is right for you, your kid, and your family. What worked or didn’t work for me may or may not work for you. Hopefully you can take my experiences, learn from them and use them to help you make your own decisions.
Second, I have no formal training in any of this. I’m not a pediatrician, psychologist, therapist, or marriage counselor. Don’t take my word as the gospel.
