An approach to child-spacing.
You must choose if you'd prefer to have your kids very close together in age, thus ripping off the band-aid in 1 very quick, yet very painful tear. Or if you prefer to have your kids spaced further apart; a less intense pain but an approach that takes much longer until the band aid is completely off.
People who space their kids 18 months or less apart take the "quick and painful" Band-Aid Approach. But people who space their kids more than 2 years apart are the ones who take the "plucking hair by hair" Band-Aid Approach.
