I have a 13 month old son that I stay at home with. I spend most of the day playing with and entertaining him. He's always been really attached to me and almost always wants me, which is fine. But...it's getting really hard to get anything done, and if I'm not giving him my undivided attention, he either whines or cries. I need some suggestions or advice, ladies. I'm not asking for him to entertain himself all day long, lol, but for small periods of time. Also, when he does whine or cry, should I ignore it? I usually give in, which I think is only teaching him to do it further. I think it's important to learn to play independently for small periods of time...but he ALWAYS wants me. Any advice would be appreciated.
