The first steps to take if your child is misbehaving takes a lot out of you. Don’t try to fight his insecurities. He must go through the pain of moving on from being dependent on you. Most of our culture doesn’t encourage this type of emotional resilience. It’s wrong to baby him when he was going through the beginning development stages. The way to pull yourself together over your first baby girl is to make sure you have a strict plan in place for when she grows up. It pays off to be intentional.
