The most important piece of advice any one can ever give a new parent would be to remind the new parents to never hand away their authority. That child is yours don’t ever give the authority of parent to the grandparents, the day care providers or even teachers. You were given this child and only you know what is best for the child. It is true that often people might know more about a topic that might fall into your world. If you find out your child has a deathly allergy to peanuts you would defiantly listen to the advice of a medical doctor on how best to parent this child in the immediate topic of peanut consumption. But you are still the parent. Don’t forget that. Too often as parents we choose clothes, foods, schools based on what other “experts” tell us is best for our child. This can be very dangerous.
