I’ve been researching and can’t find swim floats for toddlers that weigh less than 30 lbs. I was able to find life jackets for as young as infant but my son (15 months) is terrified of wearing the life jacket as it’s hard to move his neck and see with it on. While I intend on holding my son in the pool this summer and he’s signed up for swim lessons, he’s a very independent child, he’s quite st... More
My son is an only child. He does not play well by himself. I always have to play with him or watch him do the playing. If I step away to do some “adulting“he’s begging that I watch this, look at this look at that. I try to mix up His toys but he is a child that really needs someONE to play with not things, I think. He’ll be an only child so he needs to learn independent play. How do I encou... More
I would really like to get my son involved in an activity. He does not like group sports due to the sensory overload. It is not a good fit for him right now. I think he would do well in music lessons or karate where it is a more individual experience... my main goal is to build his confidence. Anyone else have any activities their introverted child has done well in? Is 5 old enough ... More
My 7 month old is an epic chewer - EVERYTHING goes into her mouth as she explores. I'm vigilant at home to keep choking hazards out of reach, but I want to start taking her out to the park and trying some sensory play activities but how do i let her semi-independently explore and learn without swallowing rocks and sand and trash? Any advice? And what were your favorite play activities in ... More
My 2 year old always says “no mama, no book” when I open a book. He will do his best to close it (including sitting on it if I resist). He always wants to to play cars or something else, which I’m cool with, but you know, all the blogs and guidance say read to your kids daily. I’ve tried reading aloud while he plays as well as just sitting silently with a book, but it’s as if he is jealous of t... More
My son is 22 months old. He can read more than 350 sight words. but when he see a new word he doesn’t know how to pronounce it. So I want to teach him phonics and how to decode a word. I don’t know where to start. can you share how you teach your kids and what materials do you use to teach your kids.
I have a 20 month old and a 4 month old. I haven’t had the courage to go out by myself with them. Any tips?
I want to get started on coloring activities with my 14 month old; what safe child brands do you use? 😊
There’s so many informations, books, opinions, etc out there. I just wanted to hear from other parents, your experiences, on starting to teach your child to talk & if you could recommend books, websites & other resources, it would be very helpful. Some would suggest to keep talking, singing, reading & interacting with your child. Others include sign language. Which one works best fo... More
Ok so since November I have been pretty depressed and I'll be honest, I didn't really know it til now. But I've been on serious auto pilot concerning everything, even my 18 month old. We wake up and I have basically stuck her in front of the tv till it's time for sleep again. Something clicked into place and I realized this. I'm taking the tablet away except for an hour a d... More
