We have a 1st grader and there is this boy in her class that keeps bothering her. He kicked her legs several times, took away her stuff, called her names, made fun of her name. So we send an email to the teacher. The teacher promised us that won't happen again, but the other day during dismissal the boy kicked her leg again. My husband called the principle. Since she wasn't there, he l... More

I’m about to rip my hair straight out my head!!! My 27 month old listens to everyone but me. He will let anyone but me change his diaper and dress him. I get a tantrum and literally have to hold him down to get anything done. At first I thought Maybe I was hurting him but I’ve watched my husband do both and it’s no different than I do. He cuddles with me and likes me(lol) so I’m wondering if it... More
Hi everyone, I have a 3 month old and recently she started hating her carseat. I don’t know what to do. She’ll be fine for about 5 minutes and then starts whining and then full blown screaming/crying. She used to go to sleep in her carseat, but now she won’t. I always make sure that she is well fed and burped, I have tried trying to get her to nap it but that doesn’t work, so I have tried to pl... More
My 5-year-old appears to be socially awkward even in a known environment. She shows very low self-esteem and is not open about her feelings to us so hard to help. She starts kindergarten soon so I want to be able to help her build confidence. Tried zillion play dates, exposures to activities and people, talking with her but nothing seems to help. Any suggestions?
Ok so I am a step mama of 2 great kiddos. One is 7 and one will be 6 in September. The only problem is when they stay with their mom for long periods if time they come back with terrible behavior issues (hitting, yelling, lying, terrible attitude/back talking) and this does not happen when they spend extended periods of time with their dad and I, it only happens when they come back from a week ...

My son used to be a dream to put to bed. Enter terrible twos. Getting him upstairs for a bath is fine but when we take him out, chaos ensues. He hates getting dried off so we tried to let him do it himself. That really doesn’t work. He also hates getting his diaper on or getting dressed and runs around the bathroom in a hyper state. Story time used to be a dream as well and he would sit on our ... More
My 23 month old is starting to have tantrums and also starting to say no and hit and throw things. She cries all morning and cries all night and I can never figure out what is wrong. I am trying to find the best way to teach her to express how she feels while still not giving in to this behavior. Can someone give me some tips on how they handle the tantrum phase?
My 6 year old has began lying about almost everything possible. We just had a baby and it started a little before that. She has made a comment if I feel like you hate me. She has been beating her Barbies and screaming at them. I know that it is common to have kids act out when a new baby comes but is it this bad?
My 17 month old won’t eat anything except plain Cheerios, bread, biscuits, croutons, crackers, and cookies - basically, bread products only. No additions, no toppings, nothing. And he only grazes or snacks, never a meal’s worth. I’m lucky if I can get him to drink 4 ounces of milk. This is a huge change from when he used to eat all his veggies and was open to full meals from all the food groups... More
So Im staying with my in-laws for 4 weeks and then my husband (whose is traveling for this time) will join us for another 2 weeks before we get back home. My (only) toddler is regressing in every aspect in the past one week and its driving me up the wall (potty training, bed time routines, eating habits etc and its just been 10 days). There is a 6 hr time difference and he is a bit jet lagged. ... More
My daughter is 20 months and still doesn’t really talk much so she expresses every emotion with a loud shriek or scream of some sort. She gets scared she screams. She gets upset she screams. She gets excited she screams. She gets happy she screams. She even laughs with a scream. I want to help her express her emotions in a way that is more appropriate but I don’t want to make her feel as if I’m... More
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.
I have a 2.5 year old daughter whose been in daycare since she was 12 weeks old. She’s sweet and loving and I always get the nicest reports from her daycare teachers that she’s a “great listener,” “shares well,” etc. she’s also an only child and given the $$ we had to spend on multiple rounds of ivf and my and my husbands advanced age she will probably (99.9%) always be an only child. Her teach... More
I have a 12 year old daughter who is like a total stranger to me. This year has been a challenge to say the least. She has ADHD and needs additional motivation to do anything on good days. Right now, lying about everything. Goes to school and doesn’t do her work. She had a take home test I asked her about 3 times. I was told it was done days ago. Then Saturday and Sunday. She didn’t do it, took... More
Okay so...my 3.5 year old daughter has been acting out A LOT lately, I would say it started around a month after she turned 3. She does not listen to us at all! She is always talking back, yelling, and storming off. Before that, she was the sweetest little girl ever, very funny, very happy. It was almost like a switch flipped and lately she is just SO moody...we went to the park yesterday whi... More
My 16 month old will only put away his toys or pick up his mess/trash if I sit him there and make him watch me clean up. He’ll mimic, but only sometimes. I see kids who clean up after themselves without being made to do it. How do you instill that into a toddler?
My four-year-old started preschool in August. She’s always been an introvert so I knew adjusting to preschool would be a challenge for her. She has also always been the type of child that wants to observe what’s going on and once she’s comfortable will participate.She’s now been in school for four months and the teacher said she still having a really hard time. The teacher said most of the time... More
