Wondering if anyone else has or is experiencing this with their little one. Whenever my son does something he isn’t supposed to and we tell him no he gets very upset and will either hit himself in the side of the head with his hand or he will lay on the ground and hit his head off the floor. It makes me very nervous but he only does it when he is told NO and then starts to cry. Any recommendati... More
What can I do to fix it?
Hes been so yelly and whiney lately no matter what I do. He doesn't stop weather hes playing or being held or eating or nursing. He doesn't seem to know what he wants, as he will gesture to be held but then immediately want to be put down. He just had a checkup and everything is healthy and normal. I'm at a loss of what to do and my patience is starting to take a serious hit. Please help.
My 2 year old boy won’t let me go anywhere without him I could walk 2 feet away from him and he starts crying and just wants to be with me. Even if he stays with grandma or daddy. He wasn’t like this before until after he turn 2. Is this a stage ? How can i handle it? I mean I’m okay with it i know he’ll outgrow it but i just want to know if there’s ways to handle it since I’m going back to wor... More
Long story.... my boyfriend won emergency temporary primary custody of his five YO son after his mother moved him two hours away, against custody orders, and refusing to let my boyfriend see him. Let him get so sick and won’t take him to the doctor - we almost had to hospitalize. (A lot more happened but that’s the main) Shortly before all this happened, I had moved in with my bf. I know there ... More
I want my kid who's only 22 months to be safe when other kids hit and push and scratch and bite. Today at the library a 3 year old kid was playing rough by snatching toys away from my son and not sharing and If my son had insisted I'm sure it would have erupted into hitting. Luckily I was there to guide my son to other toys and I even attempted to facilitate sharing and cooperate play b... More
So we recently relocated & I've been a SAHM for most of our sons first year. Luckily my in laws relocated too so our son is able to spend time with his grandmother while I’m at work when his daddy is working. My question is, how do I make this transition easier for both of us! Understandably he is very attached to me (food source / main source of comfort), but between the move & his... More
Hi all, we are at 5 mo and running up against a new problem: baby is very congested at night and won’t go to sleep! Lately she’s been SUPER congested, though with minimal snot when I use an aspirator or nose Frieda. We have a cool humidifier in her room that runs most of the night and put saline drops in her nose before bed. Lately she has been waking up and wants to play around 3:30/4a. Sh... More
So my three year old has become wreckless at preschool. She’s displaying bad tantrums, throwing legos and books. Normally she only does it when her mom leaves to go out to sea and is gone for a while but now she’s been on a streak and mom has been back here for a few weeks now. I’ve tried talking, cutting deals, exercise discipline and moreeee talking. Doesn’t seem as if anything is working. Id... More
So recently my 4yo daughter has started fake choking. We have no CLUE where this came from. Every time she does it every one jumps. I’m terrified that if we stop jumping, one of these times she’s really going to be choking. She only does it with drinks or food in her mouth. This is growing to be very scary for us. Tomorrow is day 4 of this. How can I make her stop? Any advice helps!
I posted recently about my son and his behavior as far as yelling goes. He’s going to be a year November 5th. He fell and hit his cheek on the corner of a coffee table because he triedgoing a wa he knew he didn't fit. He's ALWAYS falling and hitting his head. Makes me wonder if that's why he's always yelling and crying. And he keeps doing the things he knows gets him hurt. He... More
Help!! I only have one child, who is almost a year and a half old who recently when he doesn’t get something he wants or doesn’t want to do something we want him to do just starts having a meltdown!! Is this normal for kids as they grow up to start this? As first time parents any tips or help would be greatly appreciated.
I have and 9 year old daughter and a 14 month old son. Lately they have both been going through changes but I am struggling to figure out what to do. My daughter has been having more and more attitude issues. I feel like I have tried everything from sitting down and talking, giving more alone time with me, waiting for it to pass and taking things and privileges away. I feel like nothing is work... More
Had anyone else dealt with this at such a young age? My daughter is not yet 2.5 and I think she is being bullied by a 3 year old who used to be in the same class with her. They were friends before and I think my daughter has a hard time understanding the age difference and that since this girl moved up she has new friends, but this girl says some mean things to my daughter and I’m pretty sure s...

Our 3.5yo boy is well behaved most of the time, but can have typical toddler moments too. My boss/friend has two sons 3 & 5 who behave terribly (hit, scream, whine, and manipulate to get what they want etc). When we have gotten together my son starts to act out like them and continues to do so afterwards. It requires so much “relearning” of good behaviors that it isn’t worth it to us to get... More
