I think this depends more on the child and the parents, and how they approach and respond to the situation, than on the event. In fact, I would argue that the long-term outcome depends almost entirely on the parents (at least their overall parenting approach/effectiveness, and how they handle this situation), since I would expect them to have a very strong ...

There was, recently, a This American Life Podcast addressing a similar situation that you may be interested in listening to. * SPOILER ALERT for that Episode * In that episode one of the students ends up going to class at a privileged school but he can't afford the books so he falls behind in class: I didn't do the homework, so I'm going now into a ...

I think humility in this sense is referring to a characterstic or quality of personality, which is either innate, or aquired. Those that are acquired are acquired slowly, over many interactions or situations where the behavior is engaged in and either reinforced, discouraged, or extinguished based on feedback- or lack thereof.

I never thought about it before, so here are a few things that just popped into my mind : You can maybe play "hide & seek" : your wife hide the device somewhere while still connected and your kid has to find "you" back sing-a-long with a little organisation you can probably also read him a book (while your wife turns the pages) have him make and send ...

If the other person starts getting annoyed or she starts getting frustrated, redirect her and amuse her yourself. It's a good thing for toddlers to have to deal with situations where others don't react the way they want sometimes. It helps ...

I'd say let him play on his own as much as he wants to. Make sure he can come and get you guys if he gets distressed, but if he's happy, there's no problem. If he never engaged in social play with adults, or only when adults forced him to, then that could be a sign of a developmental issue. But if he absolutely refused to play alone ever, that would also be ...

I think it depends on the context and age of the child. I doubt a baby would be harmed by witnessing their parents have sex, as long as they aren't having sex with the child. However, an older child might be tempted to imitate what they saw their parents doing, which could lead to inappropriate behavior (eg trying to have sex with a peer). If they do engage ...
