Joanne Posted February 11, 2008 Share Posted February 11, 2008 I am not at all comfortable with what I perceive to be a shift of information and power from parents and select community to doctors. I don't believe - for a second - that a doctor, even a ped., has inherently more information, wisdom or clout when it comes to *parenting and family* choices. Doctors are for medical issues. Everything else? It's none of his/her business. I realize that some areas are cross overs: breastfeeding sleep nutrition developmental milestones reproduction/sex ed/birth control But not: discipline choices educational choices I think we've given/they've assumed far too much say, power and respect for areas beyond doctoring. IME, they have about the same level of confused misinformation as the non doctored public. extracurricular activities Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
