I am not trying to be "preachy". I am in NO WAY saying that I am better because I do things one way and you do them another. I would never presume to be a better parent or wife or friend or citizen of the world just because I chose a different option than maybe you or your mom or your neighbor.
I am simply sharing information.
Please also know that I understand the fact that not everything works for every individual or family. Every body, household, personality, bank account, and disposition has its own needs and limitations. I get that. I sooooo get that.
All of that being said, I welcome a challenge. Respectful debate will never be shut down here. You are more than welcome to disagree with me! This is just how I have chosen to do things (so maybe I disagree with you on some points--but we can still be friends, right? I mean...I have friends that enjoy eating celery, for heaven's sake. THEY ENJOY IT!! But we are still friends.)
