Interesting debate

DwL readers in the UK will probably have heard of the controversial babycare expert Gina Ford. Ford's book, The Contented Little Baby, is a bestseller but many parents find her techniques too regimented and dictatorial.
I stumbled across this article and two quotes made me smile (as they seem to reiterate how divisive the approach to dealing with routines is!):

I haven't read any of her stuff myself, but as far as I can see, taking childcare advice from a non-parent is like taking driving lessons from a non-driver.

Regarding the charge that Gina Ford has no children of her own... well, really, most doctors haven't had cancer. Does that mean they can't treat it?
