now i'm no expert, given i only have one child under my belt....
but i have see so much of me in my son, and his father, and his grandmother, and his uncle....
so i have one philosophy with.......

not who i want him to be, not who i'd like him to be......

but EXACTLY who he is!!!!

What a wonderful truth. I have a belief as and educator: If you put the needs of the child first, things usually work out. Follow their lead and change yourself to fit their style. :_)

Well, I don't know that I should dole out parenting advice, since I feel like I'm a new parent myself... but I think what you said is so true. You've got to let the child be true to themselves, and train them up accordingly. I never want to try and fit my girl into anyone else's box, she's truly unique and so is Asher! And as for potty-training. Well a good couple of days at home with lots of salty foods and drinks... and sticken' em' straight in underwear worked wonders for me! She was trained in a week! But of course, every child is different, just like we said, LOL
