Is it normal for my child to be ignoring me?

Is it normal for my child to be ignoring me?

Yes: Sure, they probably have their minds on something funner. Children don't have a long attention span, and would rather listen to fun things than instructions, anyway. If you want their attention, get at their eye level, gently square their shoulders to yours, and speak to them eye to eye.

Parents may find it cute & send a smile their way while saying no-this confuses. ...Read more
