I think this is a load of crap! A "friend" of mine says that because my 22 month old is going potty twice a day on his own potty, I'm pushing him to hard. She says I have always pushed him because he was talking in sentences at 8 months old and that that is just not natural. That kids just don't talk like that at 8 months. Ok well I have never "pushed" him. At 8 months he was saying "what's that" because I would ask him that all the time. i told her that i don't push him I just talk to him and exsplain things. She said what about his ABC's and the counting everything for him. I told her was just trying to teach him. I don't expect him to remember everything. Being repetative will help him learn things easier later on. She has a child who is 6 months older and does the samething my kid does. I asked her if that means she pushes her daughter. She said no because her daughter picks things up from Dora and Sesame Street. She doesn't have to force her to learn things. What???
I swear I don't force him to do anything. In fact if I start counting or singing (any song) and he doesn't want me to he says "Stop, no please(peas)."
Am I bad mother cuse my son picks up on things? It's always been easy for him. Why is it I'm pushing cuse I don't sit my child in front of the TV and expect it to teach him?
Am I pushing him??

Just because your child(ren) do things early doesn't necessarily mean they are "pushed". If they are "pushed" and accomplish the task what's the problem. There are a lot of things out there they aren't going to "want" to do but they are going to have to do it anyways.
