I am trying to raise a child by using more praise than scolding.
It is a difficult mission as I don't want to raise a spoiled kid. Anc it is difficult because in tbe beginning babies don't know right from wrong. But I have one assumption my baby is only driven be need to exploee everything.I deeply believe he is not naughty. He is not trying to do things the wrong way intentionally. He is just trying everything and approximately half times he will be right and half time wrong.
So what is happening usually? We so OFTEN ignore when they do the things right. Anf we definitely scold them for doing any tiny thing wrong. I am guilty of that too. So what happened next? When baby needs your attention they are likely to do something wrong again, so for sure they will get mommy react emotionally. Of course there are exceptions. I often see Navish trying to do things right expecting the praise. So many mission is to emphasize these moments. Praise her a lot, to drive his future experiments in the right direction sometimes I am more successful and sometimes less. I lose my cool and scold him too, especially when he does dangerous things. But I hope to establish my rules and explain to him, calmly and firmly. I hope with time, more and more things will go the right way, and less things will go wrong.
