I would say my mum has had an impact on my parenting. With Mason I didn’t realise how much attention he needed from me and interaction with him. As a first time parent I did slack with that. Once my mum had showed me like this is what you need to do with him to keep his mind occupied and keep his brain occupied. That helped me as a parent and moved me forward as a parent. I could understand his wavelength and that he needed that interaction to keep going and not be naughty and mischievous.
And now I have learned that with Luca, that I need to give him that interaction and just socialise and talk to him. Even when he can’t talk, just talk because it does bring on their speech a lot better if you continue to speak to them. Even before Mason could speak I spoke to him a lot and now his speech is amazing.
