Ok here goes... Im 21 and I am in great need of some advice for my beautiful ten month old baby girl. I love my daughter to death, but am so scared that I am raising her wrong and she will be a spoiled brat. I live with my parents currently till i get back on my feet because the father of my child and I just couldn't make it work. He tells me at times that I am spoiling her. he is older and has an older boy. Then there are my parents who are wonderful grandparents and LOVE MY DAUGHTER and are soo soo wonderful to her. The father of my child says they spoil her too. Which in some cases I do agree. I feel like I owe her the world, and I also feel like I have let her done because I didn't try hard enough with her father, so I try and give her all of my attention and LOVE that I could possible give my wonderful daughter. She is my companion and my other half and I don't know where i need to draw the line.
My friend came over with her daughter for a play date and my daughter had gotten upset. I was changing her diaper and she threw a little fit because she did not want to be changed I just tried to soothe her and rush. My friends daughter did the same thing and she yelled at her and the daughter looked like she had fear but she listened. I don't like seeing my daughter scared or frightened and especially of me. So where do I need to draw the line? How early? What are some good disciplining techniques? Please I need all the help I can get because I want the best for my daughter.
