The Best Parenting Advice EVER!


I LOVE this article!

Parent's Magazine asked doctors, teachers, daycare providers, babysitters, etc. what advice they'd give parents.

For example, a teacher said, "If a parent doesn't follow my directions, I'll assume her child won't either. I give parents specific instructions -- fill out these forms by this date, e-mail instead of calling, don't put candy in your kid's lunch. As soon you break my rules, that creates an immediate bias against your child."

A doctor said, "As much as you want a prescription to fix everything, your kid probably doesn't need antibiotics. For example, 80 percent of ear infections go away without them. It's a dirty little secret of pediatrics that ear infections pay our bills."

BTW, you should subscribe to parents.com daily email. I've gotten some great stuff out of it over the years.

Here's a link to the article!
