Well, she posted this today and I followed the link to this post by TypeAlice. I'll post TypeAlice's post here:
And then I found TypeAlice's more recent post here... Its just entertaining to see how people react, how people take sides etc etc. If you're bored and like to watch drama from the sidelines, click around on the links in each of their posts and I'm sure you can entertain yourself for a few good hours.
So, I’m saying goodbye to yet another blogger who I’ve read for a long time because of parenting practices that I do not believe in. It kind of sounds lame, but when you are this passionate about not letting children Cry It Out, I just cannot keep reading someone who does it. I’d do the same thing for a spanking parent, a verbal abuser parent, an otherwise-abusive parent. I do believe letting your child cry (as a method of sleep training) is child abuse in the form of neglect. Just in case you’re new to this blog, I’ve discussed it at length here and here, and kind of here.
I’ve said goodbye to other favorite bloggers due to conflicting parenting choices (CIO to be specific), Frema, TheNewGirl, and a Flickr friend- Shondi (wife of the owner of Threadless), all who I mourned for a while and then got over. I hadn’t been following their lives for nearly as long as Linda’s, but I imagine I’ll get over it sooner than later- all I have to think about is her laying in bed with earplugs in as her son screams for her attention and goes ignored. See? Already I miss her a little less.
So, see ya.
