What do you do for help around the house and kids?? Multiple tries to trust strangers in my house failed!! Would love to get some HONEST and EXPERIENCED comments Thank you
What would you do if your very verbal 2.5yo came home with a red mark all around their wrist? I asked "what happened why is your arm red?" and my daughter said the teacher pulled her. I asked why did she pull you? She said because it was naptime. I asked her if she was in her bed at naptime she said no i was not in my bed. I asked what did you say when the teacher pulled you. She said... More
My two year old manages his tantrums fairly well, but recently he’s been struggling to accept he has to go to daycare. He’s been going since 7 months so it’s nothing new and he used to enjoy leaving in the morning. But he was sick a few weeks ago and got to stay home with me, and since then he’s been difficult with his morning routine. I should also mention we have a 3 month old who is stays ho... More
I know my son very well. I kept him home for his first year but now that he's 12 months both my husband and I have exhausted our leave and we have had to put him in daycare. To me he's my baby but technically he's a toddler so the daycare placed him in the toddlers room. The first week we put him in for half days only and each day that he came home he seemed hyper at first then ... More

My son is 18 mo and is going to start part time daycare. He’ll have lunch and a nap while he’s there. I am really worried about him napping, he’s the type that I put in his crib and he rolls around for a little while before falling asleep in his dark room with white noise...... at day care it’s lights on, probably some commotion and freedom of only having to lay on a mat AND their nap is an hou...

Hi fellow moms, my daughter will be attending preschool this fall but pick-up is certainly going to be a challenge with school letting out at 3 pm. Do you have any suggestions as to what you would do for after school pickup? We have a nanny but she doesn't drive currently. Any input is much appreciated :)
Hi, My fiancé and I are trying to decide whether we send our 3 year old to a daycare that has a preschool curriculum or an actual preschool. The problem with a preschool is we don’t know my schedule come fall but my fiancé has to work the whole day so I would have to be the one bringing him the part days where daycare is the whole day. Also, we have a 2 year old which won’t be ready for presch... More
My parents used to take care of my 2.5 year old son while my husband and I were at work. He started going to preschool/daycare a month ago and he’s doing okay now. The issue is that even though he doesn’t fight it (like he does before bath time and bedtime) he whines and cries all morning while everyone is getting ready in anticipation of getting dropped off. He wakes up okay, then the whining... More
Hey all, just want to see what people have done. I am a divorcee with partial amicable relationship with their mom. I am looking for option for the first summer coming up for child care that doesn't cost too much. We have our 6 year old boy in camps for a few weeks but can't do this all summer and nanny is expensive. Thoughts?
Please share all of your tips for transitioning from staying at home with mama (or caregivers they know) to full day care outside of the home. Tips for mama and kids welcomed. I believe one twin will transition smoothly and one will have a REALLY rough time.
My almost two year old comes to work with me at a childcare in a gym and recently he has started hurting other kids (pushing, hitting, kicking etc.) He’s always been such a sweet little boy and so kind to others but recently that’s changed. I’ve tried being stern with him and I’ve always tried talking to him nicely and telling him that behavior isn’t acceptable. When we get home I talk to him a... More
Interviewing our babysitter candidates today. Do I need to let them know there will be a camera watching them? What if they ask me if we have a camera set up? Do I need to disclose that we do? They’re not going to be hidden anyway but we won’t have them set up until the day of when we first need them.
What do you do when you pick your child up from daycare and the first thing they say is”I don’t want mommy!” Then proceed to say that and throw a tantrum as if I was abusing the kid. How do I handle a situation like this with everyone judging me and no reason for my kid to act this way?
I’m getting a promotion at work, now working full time plus extra hour sometimes. How do I prepare my 2 year old for day care. How did you mommas/daddas handled the roller coaster of emotions when preparing your little one for day care? I’m so scared with everything I see on the internet involving the traumatic daycare stories but I know it beat for my baby, to learn social interaction and lear... More
We are putting our three month old in an in-home daycare facility, which is very close to our home (and she’ll be the only child at the moment!) The caretaker has asked for cash weekly. Does anyone have experience with in-home daycare payments? Should we be asking for receipts so that we can use our FSA dollars? Because she is running her own business, we don’t have to be concerned about how sh... More
It's painful for her when I'm changing her, and I feel terrible. I struggle to get her clean because she is crying and trying get away. She doesn't act like this when she doesn't have diaper rash, so I know it's the rash that is causing her resist the changing. I have mentioned this to the day care provider in the past, but I'm wondering if it's realistic to expect t... More
