The While Baby is Growing Episode:3 "6-9 M"

Baby Who Misbehave


He's too cunning to realize that it's the best way to play a forgotten and neglected victim role.


Like many babies of this age, your baby can learn how to use his/her surroundings. And like many good parents, you fall into this trap. He's too cunning to realize that it's the best way to play a forgotten and neglected victim role. He/she gets what he/she wants by taking advantage of your indecision and your sense of guilt- it's probably something you're already giving him, but he doesn't want to take any chances.

Babies, toddlers, and even older children are more likely to be mischievous to their parents than to other caregivers, because they feel safer and more comfortable with them. They reveal their feelings without the risk of reduction in the shown love. But this mischief is not always indiscriminate and often has a purpose. Thus, he draws the attention of his parents and ensures that it is continuous and tests their boundaries: test How far can I go until my mother (or father) explodes or surrenders? This is the purpose of driving the crushed carrot to her hair or expelling her toys from the playground. The baby, who constantly brings his or her walker to the forbidden zone, makes the same calculation.

It is both normal and probably healthy to exploit you to a certain extent. This gives a child the opportunity to check his surroundings. But if it goes off the rail, he/she can harm his spiritual development. If so, then follow your baby's wishes; when he really doesn't get enough attention and he shows it to you.
