You wanted a child! Now you have one! So, what next? I say do what you think makes sense. Do what you want to do. There is no reason you must do what you see others doing. Have fun. Enjoy parenting. Enjoy that little newborn and that toddler and that teenager all the time.
Many parenting books discuss the problems of dealing with a newborn or toddler or teenager. This very short book, called Parenting without Punishment is about positive parenting. It is three parenting concepts. Discipline for children may often be thought to be unpleasant and involve punishment. Actually, to discipline means to teach. So.... how do we think a child can be taught most effectively? By making him or her miserable in some way or by making him or her very happy by talking and listening and explaining? This is a tiny book about ways to enjoy parenting as the parent helps the child be the best he or she can be!
Enjoy that child all the time? Yes!

Emily Slingluff's first book on parenting, A Present to the Newborn, was written because a school director asked her what she had done with her children before they entered First Grade. She was thrilled. What she had done was not the usual. Her book sold thousands of copies and was also re-released for use in a number of schools as A Primer For Positive Parenting with a different cover, different title, but same words inside. Her latest, very short, book, Parenting without Punishment, is now available on Amazon! It is a clear, concise statement of a three-point parenting philosophy which she says is common sense and easy parenting! Really!
