Respect my baby

January 18, 2012

I hear a lot about respecting my baby and this article explains how so.

…that there is a self-fulfilling prophecy to the way we view our babies. If we believe them to be helpless, dependent, needy (albeit lovely) creatures, their behavior will confirm those beliefs. Alternatively, if we see our infants as capable, intelligent, responsive people ready to participate in life, initiate activity, receive and return our efforts to communicate with them, then we find that they are all of those things.

Tell me what’s going on
Give me attention
Hear me, don’t just fix me
Let me create and initiate my own activities
Trust me with the truth
