    Default Games ?!

    Hi everyone!
    So I've posted in here before about my depression etc.
    I haven't been the best mother to my adorable son, but I want to turn things around.
    I've started parenting classes and see a phyciatrist etc.
    I'm wondering about games and things I can do with my DS on a day to day basis, I'm so lost with it all and just want him to look back and see a happy mother who's always been there for him. Thank you!

    Thank you! It's been a long rough road, and the parenting teacher seems to think because if my past I 'am confused about how to parent properly' but I'm ready to take charge now
    My DS is 13 months old x

    Glad you're starting to feel better. It's an absolutely awful feeling.

    Reading to him, singing songs/nursery rhymes, putting on music and dancing are loved by my 10 month old, and most toddlers I know. Anything that involves making noise (turn pots and pans into musical instruments).

    :-)

    My DS is 16 months. He's a bit of an independent guy will sit there and flip through board books or just run his trucks around on the ground. We have a few small empty cardboard boxes and he likes to put things in and out in and out in and out!

    What about finger painting? You can make your own paints (I haven't tried but I found a recipe on google. Even just throwing the ball around outside will keep him occupied.

    And playdoh (make your own) - if you think he won't eat it. The park is always good - slippery dip and swings are the best.

    For a 13 month old...

    Reading

    Peek a boo

    Crawling races/ chasing

    Anything in garden

    Water play

    I do silly things like line up toys along the side of the bath and count to 3 then drop them and say 'whoops' things like this seem hilarious to my youngest

    Pots and pans on the floor while I'm cooking, put toy in one and ask him to find said toy

    Music and dance along with bub

    Can't think of anymore at the mo. I think its a great age, they tend to be easily pleased. I did a lot more with older children, tried crafts etc but I think simpler is best for 13 months

    Glad to read you're feeling better

    My DD is the same age, she likes looking at her books with me, playing with a soft ball, we go for walks and I tell her about things (duckpond, people, flowers etc) or just sing songs for her, go to a swing and swing her (her favourite), helps me with the washing/folding/throwing clothes and pegs everywhere, go for a swim, walking me places that she chooses, dancing to music. So not so much games, but fun things.
    Let us know what your little one likes, I'm always looking for new ideas! And good on you for putting yourself out there, it's hard I bet.

    Thank you everyone
    I took him to the park last week for the first time and he absolutely lived it, I can't do it everyday because it's a bit of a walk and I dot. Drive, but thank you all for the advise
