If you saw your twins sword fighting with forks, would you?
A: Take the forks away and tell them to knock it off.
B: Take the forks away, replace them with spoons, and tell them they aren't allowed to cry if they get hurt.
C: Let them continue sword fighting with the forks.
If you're me, you pick option B. It's the easiest solution to prevent screaming and allows me to finish cooking dinner. I think this qualifies me as not a hovering parent.
Zia took three steps today. I put her down in the family room and she took three steps before squatting down to crawl.
