Hi Carolyn: My wife and I have a wonderful 3-year-old son. He likes to be held all the time. He weighs about 35 pounds. My wife is OK with holding him, but I dont want him to get used to being held all the time. At home he runs around but especially in new situations he likes to be held.
My wife is a stay-at-home mom so they spend a lot of time together. I think its important for him to walk but he constantly asks to be picked up. What should we do? Tired of Carrying a Toddler
Say yes when youre OK with holding him, and say no when youre not.
