Every child didn’t come with a manual. It’s our job to figure our him or her out.

I will argue that, perhaps you are right. Perhaps, I’m destined to be a failure of a mother to him by respecting his wishes when it comes to learning. But, I will take that chance.

When people intervene with that process, inevitably, things will go wrong.

Our children are not robots who are designed to be “performance” machines.

This is what follow the child look like.

But, most of the time, they chose to play together.

What about discipline and boundary setting?

Through experience, I’ve found that only by respecting my child can I receive respect back from my child. Relationship is about mutual giving.
