My daughter is 5 year old and she likes to play baby.
I don't mean she wet their pants or actually act like a baby. I mean she likes to immitate some baby talk and things like that. Completely manageable.
But I feel she's requesting more attention, maybe because in her mind, people care more about babies, so if she's a baby... I think you've got my point here.
At the same time, I'd like to promote some more independent behavior, like eating by herself, slicing the food by herself, getting a little more responsabilities, learning to be more patient, etc.
I know some of these things are hard even for grown-ups (such as being patient) but, well, someone has to help to start it from somewhere.
So I'd like to ask here: is this "baby playing" thing normal at this age? Should I care about it or is it part of a normal process? Do you also have experienced anything like that and how did you deal with it?
