It is so well said, and so important, Dulce. Thank you. Dulce November 19, 2012 at 1:40 pm Thank you so much, lovely! Elaine November 17, 2012 at 7:26 pm I love the points made in this post! So very true. I’ve been trying to keep this approach in mind as we raise our nearly 10 month old daughter. Thank you for this wonderful thought provoking blog! Dulce November 19, 2012 at 1:41 pm Thank you, Elaine! I am so glad that we can encourage each other. 🙂 Kathleen | Becoming Peculiar November 18, 2012 at 2:21 pm I especially love the point about respecting their right to say no to unwanted touches. That’s not something I’d ever heard before, but it sounds so right. Thanks, Dulce! Dulce November 19, 2012 at 1:57 pm Thanks so much! It can be hard, I know (both my husband and I come from very affectionate families), but one of the proudest moments for me as a mom was when someone started to tickle my two year old and she spoke up firmly, “I don’t like that. It is my body and I say no. Stop, or I’ll tell.” Seeing her confidence and ability to set boundaries was wonderful.
