Thursday Thought: Parenting Books

I haven't read this book...yet!
As soon as I found out that I was going to be a mommy, I ran out and bought some parenting books. They were a great help to me, but my husband will disagree. I believe in getting advice from others, while he believes in maternal/paternal instincts. His point of view is that parenting books are "telling you how to raise your baby." He feels that since people have been having children forever without reading all of those books that they are pointless. I feel that since people have been having children forever, I need as many tips as possible. While, I'm no where near the mother in the old Nickelodeon kids show "Rugrats" always referring to the advice as etched in stone, I do believe that advice doesn't hurt. 

Needless to say this is an ongoing discussion. I haven't purchased any new books lately, but I have been sneaking a few online articles here and there! It couldn't hurt...

Just a thought.
