A common situation: a three-year Nikita is happy and gives the mother a drawing that he made her as a gift. Today at the lesson in kindergarten, the kid thought about how he handed his mother a picture of a house, flowers and sunshine. The teacher praised him for his diligence. The boy is waiting for the approval of my mother, but she casually slipped a glance at the piece of paper, put it in a gift bag, and told the child to go home. The young woman is unclear what the Grand mental work was done by her son. Nikita wanted to show how much he loves her, what they have a beautiful house and how happy he is. Instead of encouragement, the boy received a portion of the maternal indifference. In principle, its behavior is also understandable: I'm tired after work, the day was not easy, we must hurry to prepare dinner. At this point, the mother, of course, has no idea what the consequences of his act she will see soon, when suddenly the son starts crying or tell her I love her more. On reception at the psychologist, the parents usually complain that there are no prerequisites for such behavior of the baby was not. Say, cranky for no reason.
