I love listening to people who are smarter than me. Melanie Jean Juneau (sounds like a line from a song I have forgotten) is a wise an loving Mother of nine. Too young to be my Grandmother, she reminds me of the older sister I never had, and wished for all my life. Here are a few thoughts I would love to share with you from a real, live Baby Whispere. Thank you very much, Melanie for sharing your loving spirit with me and my readers.
1.Focus on the joy of parenting, not on the activities you are giving up to raise a family.
2.Treat little children like people, albeit little people, with respect for their feelings, likes, dislikes and personalities.Listen to your children, even as babies. Read their expressions and body language. In fact become a baby whisper by learning from your baby because they are not idiots, cute dolls or appendages of you but brilliant, although as yet nonverbal individuals.
3. Accidents and mishaps are simply part of every day life when you live with kids, so plan on all your plans falling apart.
4. Praise works; berating usually backfires. Give good behavior lots of attention and simply ignore most ‘bad behavior’.
