I am feeling like a terrible mom. My son is getting so fusterated when he can't do something and he throughs a temper tantrum. The full out throws his head back and cries. He is 10 months and still isn't crawling. I think we baby him too much and have spoiled him. It's just so hard to hear him cry. He also won't hold a bottle himself. I just feel like I'm failing as a mom. I want to do what's best for him to grow up to be the fine gentalman his father is.
I know he is fusterated because he can't communicate what he needs, but I try everything to understand him. I don't know if he needs to be diciplined or I need a course in how to read my child. What age do you start diciplining?

Every child learns at their own pace. My Son NEVER wanted to hold his bottle! Don't listen to what people say that the child is SUPPOSED to do by "THIS" time. Let him go at his own pace. No disciplining is necessary. I do not believe in hitting a child ever. As far as the crawling goes, have you tried making him reach for his favorite toy? Then putting it farther away each time? You are NOT a bad Mom & PREPARE yourself for the "TERRIBLES" which may last until 4 years old. Be patient and take one day at a time. You are doing nothing wrong & I understand how frustrating & stressful it is at times, every Mom goes through this. They grow up fast & once he is walking, you have a whole new set of issues. hang in there and maybe take a walk together outside. My Son LOVED Baby Einstein DVD's, they would instantly relax him with the classical music. Borrow a few from the library! GL
