@ the park I see moms going crazy with their toddlers teaching them how to climb, slide, etc. Poor moms!
My son didn't need all the attention when we started going to the park he would be seated in his stroller looking at all the other toddlers...eventually he started to go close the playground equipment and tried to climb, yesterday I was amazed that he can actually use the slide and he is only 13 months old.
I didn't have to go on the slide with him to teach him.
I don't want to sound rude but some moms really need to let go and relax. I get tired just looking some parents doing everything for their toddlers.

I understand what you are saying. Sometimes parents work really hard to get their child to "master" something, pushing to have the youngest kid climbing or swinging. Sometimes it's a parent just trying to coax a timid kid along though and it can be hard to tell the difference without knowing the child. I'll warn you, it gets worse as the kids get older. I know parents who pretty much do their kindergartener's homework so it's "right" or looks the best. What on earth does that teach a kid? (1) I can't learn anything without tons of help and guidance and (2) My best efforts are not good enough. One mom bragged that when her daughter had to draw a picture about something in a story they read together, she (the mom) printed out a picture from the story online, helped her 5 year old color it, and wrote the description herself since she had been a cheerleader and knew how to print neatly on posters.
thank you. op
