Oh, why, after all, I constantly want my daughter to be able to do this one thing or another. And surprisingly, this stream of desires, probably, will never end. That learned baby sit. So I immediately wanted her to crawl. Learned to crawl – how, she still does not walk? And so every time!
And not so long ago, I had another desire – the daughter herself should eat with a spoon. I listened to various tips and began to apply them.
To begin with, she began to give her daughter a spoon during feeding, but she continued to feed her. And the baby and did not hurry! Know, kept a spoon, and ate with my mother. Why strain something?
I watched this process for several days and something I didn’t want to continue this experiment. For a week, I put off all my attempts.
Then I found a new method – to give my daughter a spoon and go to another room. It helped the first time! When I returned to the kitchen 15 minutes later, the plate was empty! Eureka – I wanted to shout to me. Yes, what they wanted. I have not yet vividly cheered.
But my joy did not last long. In the next meal, the method did not work at all. My daughter sat quietly with a spoon for 15 minutes, and then unequivocally let me know that it was time to feed her.
The second fiasco struck me outright. I gave up all attempts and started feeding my daughter again, without even giving her a spoon. But now, after a couple of weeks, an idea struck me again! This time I took 2 spoons: I handed one to the baby, and left the other one to myself. And now … an exciting moment!
I began to burst from her plate. At first, the daughter looked with a certain surprise. Then, probably, I began to slowly understand that my mother seriously decided to deprive her of food. This could not leave the baby indifferent. She quickly began to wield her spoon! I did not believe in my success.
I admit, I am very mistrustful. Only after it invariably repeated during the week did I believe in what was happening – my daughter burst herself! I am in a hurry to share my experience. I do not argue that this method may not work with another child. But after all, the main thing is to act and invent options and then everything will definitely work out!
