My DD is not walking independently yet. She is 17 months old. I have gotten her evaluated by EI and she does not qualify for services and they do not believe she has a problem. She was never a crawler and scooted on her hiney to get around. They feel its more of a security issue and when she's ready she'll walk. She climbs all over the furniture, does stairs, and walks holding my fingers. Anyway, I am on top of this and try to continue to feel positive, that she will walk shortly. So over the past two weeks two family have told me its my fault that she is not walking on her own yet. When I asked how this could possibly be my fault, they responded that its because I pick her up when she asks!!! I got pissed, but then I felt horrible because could I have seriously done this?
