Anyone have a high need toddler? PLEASE share your words of wisdom about parenting with loving guidance with the mother who wrote the following question:
“Responding to my baby's high needs was sometimes exhausting, but from the beginning it instinctually felt right to parent him in such a responsive and gentle manner. Now that he is an active toddler and still intense in his needs, I find that I am having a hard time calmly and gently responding during tantrums or other highly emotional situations. He is too young to really understand long explanations and we both end up frustrated. How have other parents maintained discipline while parenting a high needs child with loving guidance?”
