I’m delighted you decided to explore downstream-parenting.com – and I figure now is as good a time as any to talk with you a bit about the title and subtitle of my blog.
I’m aware it may be a deal-breaker as there is a high probability I will step on some fairly fundamental beliefs of some of my readers. (should that say ‘potential’ readers? ;-)) Yet it seems only fair that we lay our cards on the table and be upfront early on in our relationship here.
You know how we teach our children that “Please” and “Thank You” are magic words? Well, it might be magic when they use them on us... but if you think your 4 year old is going to do what you’d like just because you say “please” you are in for a rude awakening!
