I agree! I never let my son just cry if I'm not doing anything!! Every once in a while he will cry when I'm cooking or in the bathroom but I hurry and pick him up ASAP!



Anyone who believes in CIO should Google cortisol. It's a hormone the brain release when you cry and if too much is released, it can cause mental retardation.
