I second the PP who mentioned keeping them close to avoid discipline problems. That whole *room time* thing just seemed wrong to me. (who was that weird parenting expert that came up with that??) So I would say that preventing situations by having them with me has solved 98% of my discipline problems. Oh I could talk for ages about the difference it made but really try it and I won't have to.

My experience of depression without medication was awful. I am in my thirties and have dealt with this since the seventh grade, probably longer. But that is another discussion.

I guess I am just stuck with the idea that while some people (and rightfullly so) don't like small talk, that is no reason to be mean. (not that anyone here is I am just thinking of my experiences) Usually a polite thank you is awesome and the body language of the customer tells you if they want to talk more or not....... No there are not such a thing as garlic flavored marshmellows. That was a joke. When people only buy two or three items, and the items are polar...
So here I am typing instead of doing my homework But I wonder if anyone else feels like there are no safe fluff topics to say to someone in passing IRL. Cause I am a cashier : and I am supposed to be personable while I am checking people out so I tend to say things like "what a lovely child" and "I adore big babies" etc and if someone buys marshmellows with garlic I might joke "yum garlic flavored marshmellows for dinner? can I come over?" I don't discuss...
Do they have snack time at preschool? The first thing that popped into my mind was they are letting her have some forbidden foods there because they think you are *nuts* ( or some more polite version). Good luck.
