|Despite being siblings....|
It doesn't seem to be a particular "type" of parent who is critical, I've heard attachment parents who claim that they are soft and gentle types ripping into people who dare to do it another way. I've heard the other end of the spectrum poo pooh attachment parenting and its values too, with all the in-between. I've spent a goodly part of my week attempting to remove one particular blogger (with her moaning and rants) from my reading list to no avail (if anyone can tell me how to remove her, I'd love to know, I've tried all the obvious ways!).

There is no "right" way to parent. What works for one family, may well not work for another. What works for one child may well not work for another, hell, sometimes it doesn't even always work on the same child in a different situation! I find it frustrating when people offer well meaning, but rigid, advice. "Oh well, I just do this!", as if were a cure all panacea. Yes, it may work for you and for your child in the situation that you are in - it may well not work for another. The more children that I have, the more I have realised how flexible you have to be to your individual child, particularly when you are parenting a child on the Autistic spectrum. There are many different ways to bring up a happy, confident, well mannered, well rounded child - no particular method has exclusive rights to it, if it did, we'd all do it that way.
