Whenever my daughter gets upset she throws herself back. I’ve told her not to do it, and explained to her she will get hurt; but as soon as she gets upset, she does it. She’s hurt herself in MANY occasions and will not stop. I have tried ignoring her, but honestly she’ll do it anywhere like on a concrete floor, or the edge of the couch or bed, so most of the time I find myself catching her befo... More
This is going to sound weird, but our 1 yo baby has recently been trying to drink her bath water. She drinks a lot of water during the day (easily 3-5 sippy cups worth plus milk). We’ve offered her the sippy in the tub when she first started doing it, but she doesn’t want to drink. Then she goes back to lifting the water pourer (you know, like to pour over her head) up like a cup, or even le... More
Anyone have any advice for toddler ripping books? My daughter is 21 months and has a favorite paper book but lately she’s been ripping it! She loves to read it but then she’ll randomly rip it. We’ve told her the book has to go to time out and will put it away but now she’ll rip it and say “ut oh book time out.” 🙈 So clearly that isn’t working. Any advice?
How do you deal with a child at night that says he is scared, faking crying, and delaying bed time by 30-40 mins? Need help. My husband and I don’t agree on the right plan of action to deal with these behaviors. I say to leave it alone and don’t go in at all after reading and saying goodnight. He thinks to go in multiple times and try to console him until he falls asleep. Any advice?
Our LO is 13 months and has turned into what I can only describe as a tiny demon lately when we change her diaper. She used to sit quietly and not mind anything at all. As she got bigger we *might* need to sing a song or hand her a toy, but generally she never even attempt to roll over. FF to now? She is literally trying to climb us to avoid putting on the fresh diaper. She hasn’t had any ... More
My daughter is 4 years old. From last 2 month or so (after her grand-parents left to India who took care of her whole day and after she was put in separate age group of kids) , I am noticing that she cries and resist to leave us for 5 to 10 minutes when I drop her to daycare, she cries if she doesn't see me around in shop (if I just move to the next aisle and she can't see me). I keep ... More
He says no to everything. No matter to what. Sometimes he wants something but he will still say NO. He is speaking a lot but his answers are always no. He is my first baby so I’m wondering if it is just a stage? How long it will be? Any tips?

Has anyone else’s child done this? Normally she’ll just yell or growl when she’s playing but lately she’s just been doing this ear deafening scream/shriek. She’s too little to understand ‘inside voices’ so I’m at a loss, she’ll get so loud to the point where it gives me a migraine and I have no clue what to do. I’m hoping it’s just a phase but it’s been going on for over a month now.
My 3 year old recently developed an extremely strong fear of bugs. We aren’t sure what caused it, and are at a loss for how to comfort him. I first noticed it a couple weeks ago when he kind of grabbed and hid behind my leg when he saw a butterfly in the yard. I explained butterflies are nice bugs and we watched it for a bit and he seemed fine. But then this past weekend we were at a friends ... More
How do I get him to sleep? Even with his crib bare, he will play with the crib walls, or his toes, fingers ... In other words, he will find something even when there is nothing to play with. It doesn't matter if he's tired or sleepy. He will stay up and play even if he's exhausted. I have to use an arm swaddle on him or he'll never sleep. This isn't ideal since he's able... More
Hi I'm a stay at home mom to my 2.5 year old son. Lately he's been really difficult and I'm struggling with his behavior. He is defiant, stubborn, whiny and very willfull. Everything is a battle... changing diapers, brushing teeth, eating, getting dressed, getting in car seat. Everything is a struggle. He also hits and throws things, like food, toys etc. I hear this is part of ... More

My 4-year-old daughter doesn't necessarily follow instructions and she doesn't pay attention in one activity for a long time e.g. while eating she moves here and there. When it's time to clean up, she doesn't clean her stuff unless we tell her some interesting or motivating stuff. Many time we end up feeding her food rather when we are in crunch time. So it takes time to finish ... More
