Parenting. It is the thing that really lets you know that you don’t know it all. And when you think you do… it brings you back down to Earth. How I love my little toe headed boy. He truly is the joy of my life. I could watch him play all day long. But this 13 month old is beginning to test the waters as far as behavior goes. I’m still struggling with trying to decide if he does some things intentionally, or if he is just exploring. I’m leaning towards exploring, because…13 months… does he have a true sense of right vs wrong? Does he really know what no means? (I’d love some input on this from some experienced mommas. Please comment below!!)
But when I tell that sweet baby “no” as he is playfully hitting my face a little too hard or pinches my nose for the 5th time, my patience runs a little thin. Eventually he needs to learn that no means no. I’ve been relying on the pack-n-play as a “time out”. But I don’t think that this method is really working. I’m at a loss. Don’t get me wrong- 95% of the time, William is an angel and plays easy with me and others. This isn’t a constant battle that we’re going through day in and day out.
Is he too young to really “discipline”? At what age will he begin to understand his consequences. Pleaseee comment below. 🙂
