Most parents feel pressured to have well-behaved children. The pressure comes from well-meaning family, teachers, and judgmental stares from strangers.
The sleeping patterns of babies are often unpredictable and complex. They raise difficult questions and pose a great challenge for new parents.
Emotional intelligence is a child’s ability to perceive, understand, and effectively manage their own feelings; to read subtle cues; and relate empathically to the feelings of others.
