Don not leave your baby Hanging

Hello to all mothers, I hope you had as much as a fulfilling holiday as I did, sadly however it is time for us to come back to the oh cruel reality. Last week I discussed about New York mothers and struggles they face. I wanted to branch out of that topic to discuss an issue that can stem from this. It is called Inattentiveness, and it is unsurprisingly uncommon for mothers in New York City. In the fast paced lifestyle of the city, it is not abnormal to either forget or just too totally have no awareness of your surroundings. Many mothers living in New York City have the obstacle of balancing work-life with maternal responsibilities and sometimes it can prove to be too much to deal with sometimes. So you may ask, why even bother living in New York City, because it obviously isn’t the right place for a busy mother to deal with an attention-wanting child. Well, you have to think about from the mother’s perspective. We all, me included don’t want to give up things we like or are obsessed with, it is the same with NYC mothers, as they all initially come here with big dreams filled with wealth and prosperity. 
However, if you don’t give your child the attention he/she needs on a daily basis, there will inevitably be negative repercussions in their growth. I mean we all hate being ignored or left out, right? Research has shown that the first 3 years of a baby’s life is when they unconsciously learn about social life through communication with parents, who they have already established a relationship with. If this is hindered, the baby’s social and cognitive develop has shown to be slowed down considerably. Also, another issue that mothers may ignore is when the baby is having a tantrum or crying. A baby crying is their way of saying that “I’m hungry” or “Hold me,” letting the baby continue crying only causes both more stress.
