Does anyone have kids with anxiety- how do you handle/deal with it? Help them deal with it?
Has anyone dealt with the big jump from elementary to middle school? In elementary school teachers were so open with communication and involved parents with everything but with middle school it’s crickets, I get no communication expect what my daughter tells me which is not much! I know they are trying to teach independence and etc etc but I feel some things should still be communicated like gr... More
My middle child has been potty training for a few weeks now, we went with the bare bottom approach. She does great at home with going to the potty but she will not wear underwear at all!!! She hates it. Tips on getting her to wear them. I’ve done different sizes and styles so now what?
My three year old just broke her collarbone, she’s in a lot of pain but will not take all meds for me, usually I can distract her and get it in her mouth but I’m not having any luck. Anyone have any tricks or other ways to relieve some pain? Something to clam her down long enough to get the meds in?
I just wanted to share that I’ve been working with my 3 year old going on the potty for what seems like forever and this week it seemed to just click and she’s been using the potty- we still have some work to do. But if you are working with your kids and you feel at a loss, just hang in there they will get it!
My 2 year old will randomly start walking around in circles and will continue this for a good few minutes, should I be worried or can this be a normal behavior? If we call her name she responds and looks at us but my other two kids don’t/haven’t done this before.
My one year old has started doing this thing where he is given food, puts it in his mouth, chews on it(I’m thinking he’s eating it) and then spits it out. I thought it was bc he didn’t like what I had given him but he’s doing it with everything. I’m thinking it’s just a Phase but my other two never did that.
Daughter is at the point were she needs to start wearing training bras- every style I have brought her- she complains and refuses to wear them. Any brand suggestions? Or ways to encourage her to wear them? We have gone shopping-together and she has picked them out but still refuses.
5th grader- having a hard time getting homework done, have to tell her multiple times to start doing it and when she finally does she takes FOREVER- any tips to get her to focus and get everything done(which is a good amount of homework every night). Schools only been in a few weeks don't know if we'll make it to the end 😂
I have some birthdays coming up and I want to give suggestions for gifts(not saying I'm requiring anyone to bring anything, but there are things my kids need) what do you think the best way to communicate those needs would be? -put a list in with the invitations? Text everyone? Or don't say anything unless ppl ask?
My 10 month old is very attached to me- can't get anything done around the house. Always wants me to hold him. Has a 2 yr old sister but they play together for a hot minute before he is on the hunt looking for me. How do I encourage independent playtime so I can at least wash the dishes.
