up until now i have been responding to all of my 8 mos olds cues: feeding on demand, picking up when she wanted, & meeting all her bordom cues. However i'm finding now she expects everything now. my mom tells me that i'm creating a dependant child who will want everything on her schedual. i have tried to tell my lo "hold on mommy's coming" when she wants up & i can grab her right away because my hands are dirty, however she tends to escalate very quickly until she's coughing from crying so hard. She throws temper tyantrums when i take her away from things she can't play with. to which i simply tell her "no touch, not abby's. play with this instead". now when she's mad she'll ppull hair and pinch skin. to this i say "ouch that hurts mommy, please don't do that". how do you guys deal with these types of behaviours??
