My son (9months) is a very well behaved boy.. He is curious so of course we have to tell him 'no' and redirect him when he tries to touch things he's not supposed to (like cords and buttons on the radio..) When he stops trying to touch what we tell him not to.. we tell him 'good boy!' I think he associates 'good boy' with being in trouble because for the past few days he'll do something really good and I'll tell him he is a good boy and he'll put his head down, pout, and cry like his heart is breaking. I of course, at this point, pick him up and love on him and tell him I wasn't scolding him but praising him.
Anyone else have a similar problem? What should I do so I don't hurt his feelings? Is there a better way to scold/praise him?
