The successful parent understands the importance of mimicking play as an important developmental tool. For example--the 2 y/o girl clutches her baby dolls close, much as mom does to little brother while he nurses. The successful parent also knows it is important to stifle their laughter so as not to discourage this type of play.
Even when the 2 y/o nurses her baby dolls from her belly button.
Who in their right mind would do this?
