I was very keen as was my partner to follow their cues. We initially tried to be ‘normal’, which led to a disastrous Pink Floyd The child is grown the dream is gone I have become comfortably numb shirt use of with our firstborn to get them to sleep on their own. It worked, but it was horrible. I was used to keep it going that is, when my partner started to falter (it turns out, rightly), because I was convinced we were doing the right thing, I kept us going. And that sets the pattern. If I am confronted by research and evidence saying that a particular method is best or if my children respond better to one thing than another then I can change my approach accordingly. It means, as a parent, I am capable of turning on a sixpence but also that I can stick to what I am doing if I am convinced it is the right thing to be doing.
Strong and her answer. Pink Floyd The child is grown the dream is gone I have become comfortably numb shirt And I would echo pretty much everything she said. We banned the word ‘naughty’ from our house very early on, for example. And, like her, much of my approach has been informed as much by what my parents did that I did not think was helpful with me as what they did that was. And the same is true of my partner in this sense, so maybe my having has nothing to do with it?My children know that they can come to me to show emotion and they can ask me any question it is my belief that all honest questions (and my children don’t know another kind) should be answered honestly.
