DD is 10.5 months and I'm not sure exactly how to handle this situation. She doesn't crawl, but she cruises. She can't pull up on her own because she won't go on her knees. She will sit and scream for me to help her to a standing position, which I don't have a problem with if it wasn't for the screaming every 5 minutes. I try to show her how to get on her knees, but she won't let me put her there. When she's screaming, there is absolutely nothing wrong with her except that she wants to stand up. She knows how to get on to her tummy and roll to what she wants, but she has recently stopped doing that because she knows she can get me to come help her up and walk to what she wants. If I "actively ignore" her, she eventually turns her attention to something else, but is that appropriate at this age? I want to encourage the walking, but I'm afraid if I keep helping her up every time, we will be doing this for months because she doesn't HAVE to do it on her own. But if I ignore her, will I discourage her walking? WWYD?
