What's the best way to tackle a relative who has an opinion on everything related to the way I bring up my children?
Best way is to smile, nod and walk away. If they insisted of you saying something. Just say i will think about it. This way you wont offend anyoneRead more
Apologise. Doesn't matter how, what, why, when or who said what -- apologise and move on from there. For me personally, if I initiated the fight, I would naturally apologise (but reluctantly haha). If he started it and he apologised, I would also apologise because I would have definitely said some horrible things during the fight in retaliation. After the apologies are out of the way, things are always easier. We'd always end up cooking a meal together (because arguing works up an appetite) and we settle down to watch our favourite series.Roshni Mahtani
There are few reasons baby bites/plays with the nipple: 1. Biting at the end of a nursing session: baby normally is full already/not long interested in latching. Do watch for signs of boredom, and take baby from the breast before the biting starts. 2. When baby is teething: offer him/her a teething toy and tell him this is for biting, please be gentle when nursing. Repeat this for few times and he will get the idea.Erika Coronel
At times, I have found that the best way is to stop doing whatever you're doing and listening to what your kid is saying. Children usually cry/whine for a reason. If they want to be picked up, stop for a while, get to their level and give them a tight hug. Before you know, the kid would be happy, smiling and wanting you to let her go :)) Really, we, as adults, underestimate kids. We should take the time out and listen to whatever they have to say. Kids love it when they are being talked to and when adults try to understand them.Aashi Malhotra
