Such a nice write-up on this site for NYC fathers:
I am not sure I fall into the neurotic parent category (only had 6 questions at our last well visit) but either way, her message is clear and makes sense. Trust your instincts when it comes to parenting! Instead of constantly going to the Internet and reading countless articles or taking a 'scientific' survey from the numerous parents on the playground about sleep training your child or how to handle sharing or immunizations or how to stop your child from throwing food- do what you think is right. Many of us learn best from our own mistakes so instinctive parenting enables us to navigate down that path more often.
