Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child by John Mordec Gottman
Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child

eap35770, September 27, 2006

I am dealing with parents, my son and daughter-in-law who laugh, make fun and treat my 3 and 2 year old grand children with little respect. If they cry and want attention it is with negitive response sometimes, laughing at the cries, or moans. The 3 year old still hates to sleep in his room, and mind you this is the 3rd house lived in so it is not the same room, he wants to sleep on the couch, or in their bed, the 2 year old has followed as he is mommie's baby, the first bonded with me because he was wanted mind you but not really what they had planned, since new to marriage, a crying baby too much trouble, I helped out and he got attached as did I to having him around, but over the years it has become all to sad to know the second is moms baby, the first is there but kind of wants to be here at my house and clings to mom sometimes when sad, your book is great in it really takes the parents to be there all the way around, it is so important. The brow beating and laughter should not be to make the child feel bad NEVER. my son and Daughter - in-law do this often, it is causing great pain. My son really hurts my feeling when he brow beats the kids because he was not raised this way but he really has never had a father figure, I tried to be both and spoiled him I guess, but the pain of knowing I never treated him as he treats his kids is painful, and to say the least not funny. Both kids are such wonderful children and they should feel blessed. I know they love them but the belittlement is too much.
