    Those same kind of books say that if we don’t do our job well with our 2-year-old that the same issues will re-emerge at age 12, and what we don’t couqenr when they are 3 will return at 13. We coddled our youngest child because of special needs when she was a toddler, and I’ve been terrified of the teen years thinking of this unbiblical teaching I once read. Ugh. Thanks for the heads up. The so-called experts can be wrong.For whatever it’s worth, though, my older kids’ teen years were fine! A few bumps and scrapes but no lasting damage. I love that age! It’s the preteen struggle that is a bigger challenge. By 14 I’ve enjoyed my children.Jess, I can’t think of an author off the top of my head but I’ve read similar lies.
