In a world full of information and experts, it's hard to know whose advice to take, especially when you're the type of person who likes to do what's right. What do you do?
Say you got a new puppy and you want to raise them right. Google returns hundreds of thousands of results. You click a few of the results, but they show conflicting information.
One says dogs should never be allowed on the couch as it places them higher in the 'pack'. Another says it's fine. A third says the 'pack leadership' concept doesn't exist.
If you're the type of person who likes clear cut guidelines, this kind of situation might have you in a bit of spin!
After a few days of stressing yourself out with the final decision ping-ponging back and forth, someone close to you clarifies it perfectly, "do what works for you".
All of a sudden the fog clouding your mind clears.
Oh yeah, these people aren't living your life, you are.
If you want him on the couch, you can.
If he starts playing up down the track, then you can re-evaluate the situation.
But for now, you do what works for you.
