I guess I am really just having a whine myself because I am sick of listening to it. He wont have a bar of the sling anymore as he wants to be doing everything himself. I spend most of the day playing with him so I dont think that he is deprived of attention (the state of our house can attest to that). He just gets frustrated really easily and hates not being able to do something the first time.
Any ideas on how to gently teach him some patience? My family think that we are just too easy on him and give in too much... are they right? He is not verbal yet but I think he is pretty close to having his first words, I know its just frustration on his end. I love the AP principles but when I look at my friends babies I do sometimes think that they have it a lot easier.... then I look at how confident and smart DS is and I know that we are doing the right thing.... there is only so much whining a person can listen to before loosing the plot though.
