i struggle with parenting and where to go to for suggestions as i have no onw here. i rely on my own research as i have no one to defer to. does anyone else struggle in this way? i do not value TV, we do not have the kids watch it. we also do not buy many gifts for birthdays or holidays. we value exercise and eating a healthy veg*n diet. i do not like barbie dolls because i feel that it sets up girls to feel unhealthy about what they should look like. i do not value guns in any form. i also feel that the way people parenyt their kids has a graet effect on how society is going. and i feel that a huge downfall in society is how we all choose to parent our kids. society has taken a big spiral downward, and i suspect that this will continue. what the f*ck happened to social niceties??? nobody cares for their neighbor and on and on and on. anyone else feel in this manner?
