Debating parenting decisions

Sep 27, 2010 at 2:19 p.m. ET

For as long as motherhood has been around, the debates surrounding what’s best for baby have been around as well. Should I breastfeed? What do the studies say about circumcision? What impact does daycare have of bonding or child development?

The claims that support each option can go on and on.

From the time your little bundle of joy enters your life and in some cases, even before that, the arguments trying to sway your parenting decisions will have already started. Don't have the ideal life in the eyes of a friend or family member? It's possible the discussions began even before baby was conceived.

Parents feel passionately about their parenting decisions, sometimes to the detriment of other parents who have made a choice that differs from their own.

This October, SheKnows dives into the debate by presenting our readers with pieces that weigh in on both sides of the fence.
