Controversies and parenting styles

I have sometimes read people blasting someone whose parenting model I follow. This usually is a bummer, but it doesn't really change anything I do. I don't follow any one system of parenting but use a little from here, a little from there, and figure out what works for my family. You should do the same. Don't get locked in too tightly with one system. Most people who bother to develop a system and write about it are "true believers" and use what works for their family. They tend to also be very emphatic about it and put demands on others that are unbiblical. That may not work for your family. Something to think about. Keep a balance.
