In The Long Run
Forbidden fruit always tastes the sweetest, so try not to let on that any strange behavior surprises or annoys you. And while most quirks and puzzling habits will fade away into funny memories, never hesitate to consult your doctor if something concerns you. Dr. Baust confirms, "Remember that all parental concerns and questions are legitimate. If a parent feels that a discussion with the pediatrician is warranted, then one should take place." In the meantime, take heart that your unique children are as normal as can be ... especially when you compare them to mine!
