"Weening" in context

Weening is the process of gradually reducing the dependency of a child upon their parents or caregivers, while gradually introducing them to a more independent lifestyle. This can include reducing the amount of physical comfort they receive, such as reducing the amount of cuddling they receive, and encouraging them to attain a greater level of self-sufficiency. It also includes gradually introducing them to new experiences and environments, such as transitioning them to a new school or introducing them to a new hobby. This can be a difficult time for both parents and the child, but with careful guidance and support, the process can be made much smoother.
