My son is 18m and he only wants to run all over the house without sitting down. Any ideas on how to make him calm?
My 5.5 year old boy is growing increasingly angry. There haven’t been any major life or environmental changes, my wife and Have a strong relationship, and we don’t see where it comes from. The anger shows up randomly and often without warning, and sometimes fades just as quickly, but at times not and it lingers. We’ve tried many things to calm him (calming methods, breathing, drawing, talking,... More
My toddler is okay with other kids. There are times where he gets stubborn and doesn’t want to share and that’s fine I don’t always expect him to if he doesn’t want to share his toys. But how do I handle other kids bullying my son. In the form of taking items straight from his hands, pushing him, and taking over the area he is currently playing in (for example when he’s playing with toys at a t... More
This morning my husband came down and was trying to get the kids to clean up their toys and they weren’t listening. I disagreed with the way he was handling the situation so I just sat there quietly. Then he got on me for not backing him up and supporting him. I didn’t want to start a disagreement in front of the kids and didn’t want to seem like we weren’t on the same page so I was planning on... More
My 18 month old son throws insane tantrums, smashing his head on any hard surface he can find. Smashing it hard enough to leave red welts and sometimes even small blood blisters. This happens at least 10 times a day every day for what seems like forever but probably for at least the last 4 months. As he gets older, his tantrums have become more intense. He also has started pinching, hard enou... More
My son is 25 months old. In the last week he has become extremely irritable and cranky. Everything makes him mad and hes hard to please with anything. He has his moments occasionally but is normally a good kid overall and is happy and playful. He has also been waking up overnight crying and is hard to comfort. We've had to just ride it out and it's really frustrating bc he gets himself... More
I have a 3 year old who absolutely hates going to sleep at night. Every night is a struggle to get her to go to sleep. I’m pretty sure that if it was up to her, she’d stay up until midnight every night. Her nap time is 8 o clock, which I think is reasonable, and only takes one nap during the day around noon, for about 1.5 hours. We’ve tried no sugary snacks after 5, lavender oils, night time ...

I need advice on what has worked for you if this happens to your kid. My son has been throwing thing either at people or the floor. He's broken glass before. He also would hit people. I tried telling and showing him to be more gentle and don't hit people. I tried raising my voice with a angry face to show him it's not good to throw things at or hit people. He still does it. He knows... More
My 3 yr old daughter is afraid of everything lately. She’s always been kind of clingy and scared of certain things -but lately it seems to have gotten worse. She has meltdowns if another kid even approaches her at the playground. A lot of the play areas we used to go to and she used to love she is now afraid of and just clings to me and asks to go home. She also bites her nails constantly - whi... More
I have a 3 year old who is amazing at peeing in the toilet and goes almost every single time but she will not go poop in the toilet! We have "praised" her and disciplined her and everything! We don't know what else to do!! Anyone else have these problems?
Hi all, Lately I’ve realized that my 2yo son has gotten super active. I’m talking about ramming his body into mine constantly, jumping on and off everything, destroying snacks/toys, and even running in circles and growling and wiggling all limbs. Also, his behavior hasn’t been the best. He’s been really defiant, refusing to eat or drink, and a lot of tantrums. I just wanted to know if thi... More
I know it’s a toddler thing to get upset about everything, but when my son doesn’t get his way, can’t do something (like open a marker) or doesn’t like something, he will screech/scream. I’m trying to teach him not to, but he doesn’t talk yet so it’s challenging. Any ideas on steps to take to help combat this? Thank you!
My 1 year old is starting to have really bad tantrums and especially at night before going to bed... I tried putting music taking him a bath and reading to him and nothing works... I have 7 more weeks before having my second son and I’m trying to get him in a routine but nothing has worked..
As soon as my 4 year old finishes his Magna tile creation, my almost 2 year old breaks it. My 4 year is losing his mind and I don’t blame him. We have tried giving the 2 year old his own magna tiles to play with and also having him take a break.... nothing works. Any ideas?
