Sorry, I must sound like a bitter woman! Yes, I had a lot of these unwelcome comments (colleagues, relatives, pediatrician...) that can be really hurtful and make you doubt on top of what is already a difficult task.
Not at all. We all go through this sooner or later, so your comment made me laugh!

Sorry to hear it. We had a few too: my daughter's teacher (who meant well, but suggested we switch to OPOL, so we agreed to disagree and moved on), then colleagues who think we're 'teaching' them, as in a classroom setting instead of playing with them (I can't help but laugh when I think about this one ) or friends who think we're taking it too far. But most people think it's great and told us they wished they could do the same for their children. In the beginning, it may have bothered me more, but now, I just shrug it off.
What's on your mind right now? Just type and hit "Enter" to share it here!
Amy: @sheilac, I suggest you create an actual thread on the "Questions & Concerns" board, so fellow Zoo Keepers can help you with your concerns. 256 characters is too little to discuss something that is so important to your heart

Mayken: Adam Beck, thanks for that very interesting and timely post - it justifies the large order for ml books and DVDs I'm about to place in view of my daughters upcoming birthday!

Adam Beck: Great to hear this, Mayken! And happy birthday to both yours and mine! (They have the same birthday, don't they?) And if anyone missed that post, here's the link once more...

Mayken: It's our last night in Canada. We've said goodbye to our English-speaking and bilingual English/French friends but we have lots of memories and souvenirs. Let's see how I can keep up the momentum back home.
