I totally understand your frustration at well-wishers that tell you what's best for you (and how what you're already doing and works for you is actually bad, hahaha)!
I discovered something along my years of overconsuming parenting advice: children are different and what might work with one, will not work with the other, even with the same parents. It's so simple.
So.. do whatever feels right now.
I enjoyed your article, it has more emotion and feels authentic!
