to be more nurturing? i mean its too late for my son i messed him up already but for next time ;]
basically my son was the 'test' baby and now i know what NOT to do next time around LOL. i want to have a new baby just so i can prove im not a bad person i just dont know wtf i was doing. when i was pregnant i thought i had it all figured out but no. definitely did not!
and now that i know better i will do better, so are there classes? lol.
Classes that just say, here's how to handle XYZ situation probably won't help, you're right about that. However, classes that help you to truly understand and connect with your child might.
Learn about attachment parenting - even if you are not a naturally "nurturing" person, it is biologically wired into you to bond with your babies. (It could be that being bonded doesn't look the same for you as it does for other people, too.) Read anything by Naomi Aldort - who offers phone counseling, as well you can find it on her website; also the book Parenting From the Inside Out might be helpful to you.
I also want to say that unless your son is emancipated and estranged, you can always change anything in that relationship that you would like to. He is probably not ruined! :)
