Hi all,
My 1.3 years old son cries if i dont play him rhymes in my smartphone. Else he wants to step out of house. Which i feel is not safe and i am not able to go around with him. The worst case he always wants me to carry him during any work which i am not able to do. I gave him toys but he is not responding for it. Please assist on what can be done.

Thanks,

-Loving Mom!

Hi Muthiyalu, Your day sounds demanding with your little son. I am a mom of three sons who are now between 20 and 24. I also had a brother born when I was 15.

Your little guy might be having an off day. We all know those days are days you get through it best as you can.

I find that boys, in general, are busy people. As a mom, you need to direct their attention a little so they are productive versus getting into trouble, which is what they do if they are bored or not challenged in a productive way.

For a 1.3 year old, who loves your smartphone - you might find a similar object that is actually a toy for babies that age so he does't ruin your smartphone by sticking it in his mouth.

You might have him play on the floor and sit on the floor too and do your computer work. I don't know what kind of work you are doing - not specified. If it's house work then put him In a walker/bouncer or some child container and have him present.

Maybe a video that is something that teaches the kids something like Sesame Street.

You might try sitting him on your lap and reading him a storybook with pictures. One thing that boys need to learn is to sit still for a few minutes and focus on something. Even though these little guys have gross motor skills (big movement) the ability to sit and focus calmly is important for learning later. Little by little.

The biggest help that I had when my sons were 1- 5 was to read a book by Maria Montessori. The Montessori Method will teach you about your child's sensitive periods for learning different things. Maria was a medical doctor from Italy and did extensive work with children and discovered many key areas in development. She did a lot of research since this was the only area she was allowed to study and practice, she being the first female medical doctor in Italy. I really love her and her studies are true and very helpful in parenting boys and girls both. Please let us know how you are doing today. Susan
