So my husband is being deployed soon and hasn't worked in months because of his pre deployment time off he is going insane. Today he said something very unintellectual. "You want to take him swimming in the morning and to the Parent Link in the afternoon, how is he ever going to learn to play with himself if you keep taking him everywhere? He's going to think if he wants to play that he has to play with mommy, that you have to entertain him." So, apparently making my son sit in front of the tv by himself is the thing to do? Anyone want to have at this?
Another thing- I have a friend who has a daughter who wanted her daddy to pick her up to sit on the couch with him and apparently mommy wants daddy to stop this because she (child) shouldn't "beg" to get up on the couch and needs to do things on her own. Since when is making your child do everything on their own a good thing...
