We Are So Similar
The psychologist Gordon Newfeld claims that attachment is a multi-level phenomenon. In the second year of life, the child enters a new level: he aspires in every way to be like those who surround him.
And lo and behold a new game begins. A small, living mirror appears in the home and begins to repeat everything it sees: actions, words, and habits. Of course, this “reflection” absolutely will want to try “big girl/boy” food. And why not? It’s not a great idea to deprive your child of this opportunity, especially if you’ve already made sure that “big girl/boy” meals are those that will be the healthiest for your child. Incidentally, a diet like this does no harm to parents either – it can even be quite fun. And all of a sudden, your baby is sharing an entirely “big girl/big boy” dinner with you without breaking up your daily routine!
Give your child the opportunity to copy only what makes him happy!
