There is so much to learn when it comes to the toddler development topic. This is a topic we brought up during a brunch with my gf.
I don’t want my kid to cry at the tiniest mishap or demand help at the slightest frustration, I want to find a balance between when to comfort him (soothe his sobs sometimes but good that this doesn’t happen a lot) and when to tell him to buck up and deal with it. Finding a balance is always hard but we can right?
He recently started walking and he’s been walking quite a lot since. Sometimes he trips but I just tell him to go back up and continue walking because he can. I want to make him feel that I’m here for you, but I also trust that you can do this. Toddler always look to parents to decide how to react is real. So, if you stay calm, he might, too. #positiveparenting #storyofaldenlai
