My children absolutely don't respect their things, no matter how cheap or expensive. My 11 year old sons tablet has an absolutely smashed screen and I have told him that if he wants nicer things to take care of and cherish them. But to no avail he still destroys his things along with his 8 year old brother. And it's rubbing off to their 4 year old sister. None of them care for their things.
When did you remove the infant seat? Like the little crotch area thing, and just let toddler sit on it like a normal chair? I have removed the straps already because she hated it... so the infant thing is the only thing holding her haha Thanks!

What are you doing with money gifts given to young children? Mine is too young to “save or spend” his own money Sometimes I put it in his 529 account but this year the amount was very minimal.... sometimes I’ve used it to buy kid supplies and needs. Wondering what others do with cash given to kids 5 and under.
Ok I give Up.

“The car seat broke into pieces in a 30 mph crash test commissioned by CNN, failing to meet the basic standards set by US regulators.” Some sellers are copying popular products like the Doona carseat/stroller and selling unsafe versions for a discount. https://apple.news/AC8k9ePq8Ssu7LxgrXvaAzg
I’ve been thinking about getting our 2 year old a tablet for Christmas. We are due with twins in January and I was thinking it’d be something special for him to focus on and do/play when we have our hands full, especially at first. My husband isn’t as convinced, says he’s too little and it’s unnecessary.... of course I’d control what’s on it and when he can use it, and even try and do some educ... More
What is a good gift for preschool teachers plus assistants. It’s quite a few of them which is why I’m leaning towards a group gift. Was thinking cookies but they just had a bake sale at the school so I’m assuming they may be cookie’d out. Any other good group gifts to give?? Tia
Goal : family bike rides with 2 parents, 1 yo & 3 yo through flat, paved suburbia Question: what is the best trailer bike for the 3yo? Context: the 3 yo currently uses a balance bike, but can't yet do long distances nor is he tall enough to cross streets & be seen by drivers. We would like him to contribute (pedal) rather than just tag along. We would prefer the option to easily ... More
Asking from a 1st time parent to a toddler who’s into the holidays now & is very excited about Christmas. I know each family has their “traditions”. I’m just curious, besides Santa filling up the stockings with little gifts, can he bring presents to Dad, Mom & other adults too? I didn’t grew up here in the US, I grew up in Asia (Philippines), we do love Christmas but more as being Catho... More

The one we currently have doesn’t navigate well and the car seat seams uncomfortable..I plan on doing a big road trip from California to Canada over Christmas and I want my little 5 month old comfortable and safe while in car or walking about uneven terrain, I’d love to get back into some light jogging again!
I have a 10 year old step son and an 18 month old daughter and I’m not sure how to make gifting fair between the two. Our 10 year old put a list together and all of his items are anywhere from $70-$300!!! He doesn’t play with any toys and only likes video games!! Ugh I blame my husband for that one. At this age do you not worry about making sure they each get the same amount in dollar wise or ... More
I have been looking into pack n plays for my toddler and infant to sleep in. I want something that I can put away so they have room to play during the day (we live in a small space). I’m just worried it might be small for my toddler. Any recommendations? I need two.
