Look for some tips on potty training my daughter who’s almost two. She tells you she did pee pee but hasn’t gotten it down for the potty yet

I love her so much but i also have a bio son and i feel how the connection is different. Her mom has severe paranoid schizophrenia and substance abuse problems cause her to loose this beautiful girl. She has been living with us for 8 months and with out her mom... More
My boy started the 3yo class at day care and has cried for the first three days. Any tips of helping him though this? He seemed to calm down 2-3 minutes after we leave and has a good day in class but he is anxious at home about it. “My new class is not my favorite”. The interesting part is that he knows 80% if the kids as they had graduated to that class over the last few months.
My 2 year old daughter has been in daycare for over 6 months and still cries when i drop her off. She doesn't go to the teachers either but when I leave and I check the cameras she isn't crying anymore. I see her playing normally with other kids. Any suggestions on what I can do to make it easier on her and me when she is being dropped off? Thank you!
My son is 4 and is really emotional and empathetic and I’m the opposite of emotional in the sense that I always hide them. I’m having so much trouble dealing with his exploration of emotions when he is upset and angry. I used to just send him to his room but I know that’s not ok now. Any tips on fixing my emotional problems and not shutting down his would be amazing! I don’t want him to develop... More
So my kid is 2yrs old and will turn 3 this Sept. Starting preschool this year would mean he goes to the 2's class. So I'm stuck between sending him this year or the next. (He goes to a homedaycare /play group ). With kids who are fall born, what's ideal to do? Do you get them in school as they are almost 3, or do you wait as strting now would mean 3 yrs of preschool before Kindergarten.
I want to start potty training my son, he’s been sitting on the toilet and he’s not afraid but he doesn’t go in the toilet. I sometimes leave him in underwear but he will keep having accidents or he will tell me he is going too late. What else can I do? Any tips for those who have potty trained early? How can I stay consistent?
Hey there everyone! Ok so my 2.5 year old boy is basically potty trained at home. I feel stuck now. How do I transfer this to outside of the house? Should I just not put anymore diapers on him and deal with the accidents in the car seat and constant changing of pants or do I leave a diaper on only when we leave the house? Why does this part seem so overwhelming?
My daughter is 3.5 years old & refuses to use the potty! She is definitely ready to be potty trained because she’s always telling me to change her right after she goes. She will literally just hold it until you put a diaper on her & then she’ll go. Any suggestions on how to get her to go in her potty?
My 4.5 year old started preschool last Thursday he was excited at first but today he had a serious meltdown!! I could not get him to calm down as we walked to school. He has not shown any negative emotions towards School before, I don’t know if he was just cranky... I’m extremely heartbroken. He was upset that I took his iPad away right before we left... could it have been just a temper tantrum... More
My 3.5 year old is potty trained... sort of. He is 100% with poop. With pee- the only way he stays dry is if we remind/beg him to go to the bathroom every hour. If we don’t, he pees a little in his underwear and then runs to the bathroom. It’s not a huge puddle or anything but he’s still wet and wants to change his underwear. We have tried sticker charts, potty dances, and treats... what else ... More
My daughter is starting kinder this year, is it to soon to get her a cell phone? I got my first daughter a cell phone when she was in 2nd grade and she did good but my 4 yr old is so advanced that I think is okay but I still have worries. My husband says its okay but being in the criminal justice field my head is split. Please help? Thank you
I was pretty shocked to find some crayons in this list of school supplies that have toxic chemicals in them. “This box set, purchased at Dollar Tree, has traces of asbestos, the report found. The chemical can appear in the talc that is used in crayon manufacturing, according to the report.” https://www.cnn.com/2018/08/08/health/dangerous-chemicals-school-supplies-trnd/index.html
Do you buy or allow your child to pick out a new backpack/bookbag every school year? That’s what we did when I was growing up, but then I see how expensive the better brands like LL Bean and PB are, and I am hesitant! My son is going into Kindergarten next month😁
