I'm being told a 10 month old shouldn't be told no. Things should be just made appropriate/safe for him if he wants them or something similair should be the replacement. He also should not be on a schedual, but rather just eat and sleep as he chooses.
I tell my son no and he listens. Sometimes he pushes the boundaries as common for his age, but if redirected and told no, he listens. He also has a routine that works well for him. Breakfast at 6-7am, nap at 8 or 9 for about 1 hour, 9-10 snack, 11 or 12 another 1 hour nap, 12-1 lunch, 2-3 snack, 5-6 dinner, 7-8 snack & bedtime. This routine works well when others don't interfere. BUt they say he sleeps too much. If he misses naps he super cranky and can't even stay awake for dinner. he falls alseep eating at the highchair.
What are your opinions??
