Food for thought

“If your only goal were to get your baby to sleep through the night, then leaving him to cry would accomplish that goal. The problem is that the reason the baby stops crying and sleeps is that he becomes so discouraged he gives up trying to signal that he needs help. In effect, he has learned to sleep through the night… out of despair rather than contentment. ” ~ Dr. Martha Heineman Pieper, Author of Smartlove
