These sound to be fairly straightforward. In fact, it’s common sense. Dr. Sears does not require for parents to follow a set of rules, he encourages creativity. Which is where I think the new age parents abuse the practice. It’s all about balance. For example, I try to give only organic products to my son, but sometimes I just don’t. I’m a vegetarian, he’s not. Why? Because I didn’t want to force my beliefs on a child. He will determine when he wants if he wants to follow his mother’s 19-year eating habits.
