When someone talks about the advantages of responsive parenting, we often consider it from the perspective of cognitive development. As a mother, being more sensitive to our kids’ emotions is apparently our most significant achievement.
During babyhood, we hold our baby up whenever he cries. It is a natural reaction. We try to fulfill his demands and give most of our time keeping our infant close to us. But, have you ever thought that your proximity and closeness help develop the emotional bonding between you and the child? Yes, it does improve and strengthen the emotional bonding.
However, the more difficult phase of parenting begins when our kid grows up and starts showing those upsetting toddler behaviors. The best way to deal with this stage is to demonstrate how sensitive we could be.
