Ever make your baby do something like this?
Then this might be for you. In my latest post over at GNM Parents, I wrote about how performance pressure is rearing its overlarge, self-important head — with Boobaby only 2!
We never pressure Boo to achieve (which, I suppose, is why she still calls every color "green"). And classes we took were all about fun and play. Expectations are rising, however:
"Things are changing. We’ve started taking Boo to an acrobatics class, which although age-appropriate for toddlers, really emphasizes skill development. Our daughter would be perfectly happy bouncing on the trampoline endlessly, but now she’s expected to do somersaults and bear walks and splits."
