Great repost from The Reluctant Crunchy Mama about what to do when your child says "I Can't"
It's from Attachment Parenting International. Plenty of people will say that attachment parenting translates to spoiling your kids and keeping them babies forever. I wholeheartedly disagree. Meeting their needs when they are younger makes for healthier children, teenagers, and adults. Frequently, a parent who ascribes to attachment parenting will expect more age-appropriate independent action from their children. So what this article DOESN'T say is, when they say they can't, just do it for them.
HERE is the article. Enjoy. Respond.
