Can we schedule our son’s activities as per our convenience?
Q: We have a nine months old son. We want to schedule our daily routine activities. Should we plan our daily schedule according to our child’s daily activities or should we schedule our child daily schedule as per our convenience?
A:The development of the child is, to a large extent, dependent on the environment that the child grows up in. Parents play the most crucial role in creating a positive environment where the needs of the child are met consistently and adequately. Even when very young the child receives from the parent physical and emotional succor. Spending time with the child, holding him, smiling to him, playing with him and keeping him comfortable is the important thing and that consideration should determine responses and routines.
