Disciplining a 10 month old
My son is almost 10 months old and used to getting A LOT of attention from me. He plays on his own just fine at times, but at other times he whines for my attention. He is able to follow me around the house and clings to my leg whinning. I am unable to accomplish any household chores so I put him in his playpen and just listen to him cry while I do dishes or cook dinner. I am hoping this will teach him to play on his own when I have things that have to be done. Is there a better way to deal with this problem? Am I being too harsh? Will this actually teach him what I want it to teach him?
