Attend the crying child right away..

If you are new mom you will get advice from all 4 directions, Many would have told you "Let the child cry if you worry and give attention immediately you will spoil her, She/he will become adamant". The most ridiculous advice it is. Never let the child cry, Imagine you are crying and someone is right in front of you but ignoring you? How would you feel if the person instead of ignoring you comes and hugs you or say don't cry?

The world needs nothing but love and let's start it at home. By attending a crying baby or child we are not spoiling them , We are letting them know that they are loved. This can get tricky..what if the child is demanding something which you can't give? Distract the baby, Take them out , talk something else . Kids are most innocent souls as they forget immediately.

My personal experience:

Living in nuclear set up it's just me, husband and Atarah, My evenings are hectic as I have to prepare dinner . Atarah will get cranky the moment I get into the kitchen. I use to get irritated and try to distract her but her cry won't stop until and unless she is carried by me. So I started this ,Instead of making her cry more I lift her immediately and distract, Her mood lifts up for sure, Then I ask her " Can mumma go and cook? Will you sit here? Trust me she will say yes and let me cook in peace. Ofcourse 15 to 20 mins of time is gone but atleast I can do my work at peace. The same way irrespective of the time I take her down if she is very cranky. She comes back home happy.

When we attend the crying child they will not do things to gain our attention, it also makes them a good human . Knowing we are loved makes us happy, It will make them happy.

Very true ,i hv been given this old unworthy advise, but what you said is right. Caring is the key

Very true saved post for future 😍

I agree yaa. Same happens with me. Raising a child in a nuclear set-up is way too taxing emotionally if not physically. But yes. My baby needs attention and so be it. Somebody advised us let the baby cry, if you attend her you will spoil her but i am glad tht both side of our family and both of us do not believe in this. We tend to her the moment she is crancky and crying. Ofcourse i do have my breakdowns but after tht i lift her hug her say sorry like a million times and get her to smile back. Handling a child is tough but with love and care they can be done so much with.
I always tell myself it is us who wanted her, she didn't have a say in being birthed sonit is my duty to tkcr of her more than doing anything.
My house is a mess but i care least because the baby will soon grow up and i don't wanna live life with a guilt that i had a clean house with a crying baby. I want to have a happy home with a happy baby. Everything else can wait.

Nilofer Shaikh@mommyingandmore ofcourse I too have lost my sanity many times and it took some time for me to understand this. I see lot of changes in her behavior after adapting this.

Exactly true,same here me too always in attempt to distract my son when i have to work in kitchen,otherwise he came in the kitchen n stay with me there n u know what will happen if he will be there??😁😁

👍👍👍..can relate to it so much...I remember evenings where I would not cook and end up ordering food from outside ..but slowly I too started a change in the way I dealt with it and Aarav seemed nothing less than an angel baby 👍👌🥰

Mam seperate ah chat panalama ungakitta??

@Priya yes sollunga

I can totally relate, never let the child cry

Ohh i deal daily this days idk unwanted mitakshi will cry for no reason. if she sees food during lunch time she l just take off n run n hide n start crying out loud. I can relate to so much n this. My baby just want to escape asap.
But i try to do manage her to stop crying first as i also get worried .
Btwn nice n thanks for sharing Rebecca Prakash mom ..

I can't see Govind crying at all.

Very true! Kids only need our attention always

Great one, helpful
