Hi, I just wanted to post this quickly because I began to read The Continuum Concept the other day and I have been feeling so sad and regretful that I didn't read this book before I had my first child. It has really struck a nerve. It makes complete sense to me. Has anyone else read this book?
I thought it was interesting as I was so much more relaxed about my 3rd child than I was with my first two, and I think it is because all the info I read up on parenting that is really from mainstream parenting was so stressful. With my third I decided that I really wanted to have bub sleeping in bed with me and I wanted to carry her around and have her there to really treasure that baby stage that goes so fast.
Since reading this book though I feel as though I robbed my two boys of their time without a stressed mum and I really am struggling to work out how to apply it to a four year old and a two year old who do not want to sleep in our bed, and are already so grown up. *sigh*. So anyway, I just wanted to quickly share my thoughts and I was wondering if anyone else has had the same change of heart/ epiphany about AP after already having kids? I feel like I finally get it, but now I have to try and unwork all my habits and behaviours that I've relied on for the last 4 years, in fact, the beliefs I've held my whole life. I do feel that it's right, though!
