    Default Heart or head?

    Which do you parent by?

    Bit of both, though I struggle with the heart one at times.

    I'm *trying* to parent using both! I'm a new mummy and so far have been parenting more by head than heart (no more googling for me!) but I feel like I am slowly achieving a better balance the more I get to know my baby girl.

    I try to keep a good balance of both when parenting.

    Both. Some situations are more by the head, and some situations are more by the heart.
