Raising a Child

Dee's mother says, "If a child knows he's lovable and capable, you're doing it right."

And Dee says, "You only get to parent the child you have, not some hypothetical child with hypothetical needs-- which means you'll watch her for signs of whether the situation is producing the kind of growth you like. You know her best, so you'll notice it."

"Repeat after me: High maintenance, high reward." Aline

How did I deal with my high needs baby? Outside. We spent A LOT of time out-of-doors. It was often the only thing that would keep him calm. - me

(this post is still under construction, I add new parenting quotes as I find them.)
