The mother who intends to breastfeed exclusively will have a child with an allergy to nipples and the mom who is confident that corporal punishment is the only way, will give birth to a child who is hypersensitive to touch. And, if necessary, decide to adopt a parenting "mindset" rather than a style.2. Children learn through play, and play includes struggling, making mistakes and even getting some bumps and bruises along the way.
If we are constantly guarding, guiding and correcting their playtime, they will be afraid to try new things and, more importantly, they will not learn how to correct or soothe themselves.3.
That sends mixed signals and will only set you both up for failure. I'm pretty sure we could all tell a pretty good embarrassing story about our kids. Is a 2-year-old really responsible for you choosing to yell at them?
The better idea would be to ask him, "Buddy, do you have to go potty? Can the mistake of a toddler take away all the fun you had earlier in the day? You tell your child it's not his/her fault even if it really is.
