Lately, my son Takeh often plays with me and Ishi by pushing our shoulders and making us sleep on our backs. When he does this, he says “nenne, nenne,” so it seems like he is playing “let your parents sleep.
He is not familiar with the word “nenne” because we rarely use infant language in our home. He probably learned the word “nenne” from his daycare teacher when he was napping in daycare.
Incidentally, when we are made to lie down after being “nenne”, we are immediately pushed on the back of the head and made to get up. And when we get up, the “nenne” starts again.
This is like an abdominal workout.
The bamboo is relentless, endlessly making the parents work their abs. What is this?
The pictures make it look like curmudgeonly coach is training them.
The reason we don’t use infant language in our home is not because we have a particular parenting policy. We just don’t use it.
Basically, they call them “Dad” and “Mom,” but sometimes they call them “Mom” and “Dad. Lions are sometimes called Gao, and dogs are called Wan Wan.
When I had a parenting interview with a psychologist at the health center and was asked about my child’s language development, I replied that we do not use infant language at home, and she told me that I should pay more attention to my child and communicate with him.
Even though I explained that we use infant language when we do, and that it is not forbidden, the psychologist constructed us as immature parents who do not want to be there for their children, and the interview continued with misunderstandings. We communicate, and I am not averse to toddler language.
