Unless we are proactive about parenting, we often resort to a 'default mode' based on our parents' methods.

When you discovered you were pregnant, or at any point along your parenting journey, did you seek out support or advice from people or books?

I am not there yet, but have a lot of kids in family that I have seen growing up. There are a lot of things I feel could be done better. I have learnt a lot that way, but I do feel that books help. I read books once in a while about parenting and kids. It helps me with my nephew and niece and there is always great stuff to learn !
I've read more about pregnancy and birth. For my first pregnancy I read so much and most of it was (in my opinion!) complete crap and totally at odds with my instincts. So for bub number 2 I decided that I would follow my instincts more than books or advice. Given that I am studying to be a doula I do read a LOT of books on pregnancy, birth and parenting!
Not really. I've always aimed to just meet needs and be gentle and thoughtful. I've read lots about pregnancy and birth though.
I cannot remember that far back -when I had children there was no internet and we had to rely on books.

I think I did get a few books as I did not have a clue.

It was only Dr Spock that we all read at that time -some 45 years ago!

Nowadays it is so easy as you can go on the Internet and check out anything you want about anything.

My daughters in law did so much research before they had their children, whereas we more or less did what came naturally and what the Health Sisters told us.

Back in 1960, Dr Benjamin Spock was the most sensible, practical advice available and it helped me a great deal in avoiding fall back approaches.
