Re: How did weaning affect your relationship with your child
So, when we went through a similar phase with my older DS where he wanted me to do everything for him (at a similar age) at the exclusion of my DH, it made everyone somewhat crazy -- me, my husband, etc. Our solution (we are sort of tough love people sometimes) was that sometimes DS got to pick who did things for him, and sometimes, he didn't. It wasn't up to him who tied his shoes -- whoever was available did it. It wasn't always met with smiles (and sometimes was met with tears and frustration) but it seemed to resolve it fairly quickly. Currently, my husband is now wrestling him into snow clothes, so I guess it's resolved.
