Will they learn that if they behave in that way, they’ll get your loving attention? Will that lead them to deliberately behave in that way just to get your attention?
Responding playfully is probably the completely opposite to how your parents responded to you. And it's the opposite of much advice that's out there.
But when you really understand what your child is actually needing in those challenging moments, then it all makes so much sense.
