Calling Dear Abby...

I need some advice.

Over the past two weeks a couple of people have said some things to me that have caused me some distress. They relate to my child and my parenting skills. I admit to being not very experienced with children before we got Katie, but she seem to be a fairly normal child.
She is bright, social, strong willed, and sometimes loud.

But according to the folks that talked to me, everything I am doing is inadequate, just plain wrong, or both.

Here it is, days later and I am swinging wildly between anger and grave doubt about my parenting skills.

So, is my child generally cranky, totally undiciplined, and not pleasant to be around?

Should I be "guiding her firmly at all times"?

What should I do?
