Nick Clegg, the leader of Britain's Liberal Democrat party, recently got into a war of words with parenting guru Gina Ford. The father of three told an interviewer that he shunned the author's advice after his 10-month-old woke up four times the previous night, likening her tome to "following a sort of Ikea assembly . . . manual." He went on to say that he felt like had "subcontracted my parental instincts to this book."
Did you closely follow the routines set out by a parenting author or stick with your own instincts?
