I would agree with Heather that I am somewhere between the Mockingbird & the Bluebird. I would also qualify that with: I am a Bluebird with docs/residents/students who: 1.Listen to me with regard to what is typical of my child, what the reason is that I am there & how we usually treat my child. 2. EXAMINE my child- e.g. Hands & stethoscope on (you'd be surprised at how many do not). 3. Explain what they think, what they'd like to do & WHY if it is a change from what has worked in the past- & it helps if they accurately assess that I don't need them to "dumb it down" for me. 4. Give me a minute to process the plan, ask questions, and decide to move forward.
