When we were first pregnant, loads of advice was given. The two that stuck out most to us was:
- Never let your child loose their ‘I CAN’.
- Try to positively guide your child to be good and do the right things instead of always saying “No, don’t do that!”
My husband and I had loads of discussions on how we wanted to raise Millah and somehow those two things stuck like superglue.
Without even making the effort or even realizing consciously what we were doing, we always told her that “Millah CAN put her clothes on, Millah CAN hold her own botty, Millah CAN wash her hair …..”
