Now that I'm EC'ing regularly and reading the book I see why it was so highly regarded. There are many interesting tidbits to mull over as you transition from one school of thought to another. You have to avoid having the perfectionist mentality of it working every time perfectly. It won't. What matters is you are learning your child's behaviors and they are learning the behavior of how to eliminate properly.
Reading about the proper rationale behind EC has helped me to be able to explain what it is to others. I also feel I now have the means to gently lead skeptics down the path of correct EC philosophy. I'm amazed at some of the myths that abound about EC (for instance, my house will have messes everywhere).
I've been invited to try Time4Learning for one month in exchange for a candid review. My opinion will be entirely my own, so be sure to come back and read about my experience. Time4Learning can be used as a homeschool curriculum, for afterschool enrichment and for summer skill sharpening. Find out how to write your own curriculum review for Time4Learning.
