Parenting Methods Contrasted

A conversation from earlier today highlighted the difference between my semi-paranoid approach to parenting and Steph’s more relaxed, “wing it” method.

Caleb, Steph and I were in Caleb’s room with the lights off, playing with one of Caleb’s baby toys we had just brought out from storage. Caleb laid under it as its lights flashed quickly to music. Then:

Josh: “Boy, I hope he’s not epileptic. This would be a bad toy in the dark.”
Steph: “Well, if he is, he’s already laying on the floor, so that’s good.”

For the record, I like Steph’s method better.
