Emotions that babies have are overlooked in so many ways. Most of the time during custody situations, broken home families etc… Some parents claim to have the "best interest of the child", but is it really the best interest for the chlld or theirs?
Some parents,(who aren’t the primary caregiver)wants to have that special time with their child but is barely there for the child emotionally or physically. Which is where conflicts come into play. Especially when the out of play parent doesn’t like hearing the word NO from (the primary caregiver). Putting you, the other parent, and most of all the child in difficult compromising situations. Which bares heavily on the child emotionally! People easily forget that babies have just as much feelings and emotions as a any adult does. Especially since they don’t know exactly what is going on.
One thing I’ve learned is just because your baby is born and your supposed to grow up doesn’t mean that the parent, he or she plans to, or even will grow up. Like putting friends, partying, and yourself before the child has to cease! NO matter how old you are a change in your life, ways, and actions, is needed period. Remember when you stress the baby feels this and can become stressed. Especially from going back and forth between homes. My advice, parents please change your routine an adapt to your childs needs, feelings, and emotions. I would love to hear your feedback , so let’s chat!
