Heyy everyone my name is Amber. I have a 18 month old little boy named Kohan. He is an only child at the moment, and were enjoying it! I became a mom at 18 so I did not have alot of personal experiances to go off of when it came to parenting. This is what drove me to take the billion and 2 classes about parenting and child development that I did. In doing so I discovered that so many professionals aggreed with alot of the same things like: "back to bed", passifiers, bottles, disipline, and many more. In studing these topics farther I relized that these were fool proof-ways (most of the time) to keep my son safe and happy. Their ideas were backed with studies and tests, so it got me thinking, why do it any other way? Just for my convinece? NO, it wasnt about me anymore it was about this mirical inside of me. Since then I have been going by the book. Everyonce in awhile there is something that I may not agree with and I will change the way I aproch it, but all in all I stay close to the experts.
