Feeling Crummy!

Only way my 15 month old Son knows he does wrong is when he cries. If I tell him "NO!" and do a finger bop on him then he cries. I want him to stop doing wrong, but I feel awful afterwards when he cries. UGH! Then my Husband gives me a "Oh Brother" Look, but tells me he's ok.

    It is a totally normal reaction to feel guilty. Just remember that he is not crying becasue you hurt him, he probably can't even really feel a little finger tap...the crying is generally just becasue they are not getting to do what they want. Sometimes I feel guilty too when I correct my son and he cries, I just keep in mind that I am teaching him how to be a good kid and that someday that will translate into him being a good man.
