I am going to try this again. I 've learned a lot and would like to continue. This time, no personal anecdotes from me. I don't believe in punishing children because it only tells them that there is an adverserial relationship and that the big people have all the power. Children don't learn from their mistakes this way. I think consequences might be ok but I am still debating this one. It, of course, depends on the age of the child, the action, and the...

I am actually opposed to punishments and have only experimented...
All right, now I am pissed off and am going to sign off for a while. I am also deleting all my posts so that future readers don't feel the need to misinterpret my writing and pass on their own judgements. I just don't understand why people feel the need to make comments and offer advice where it is unsolicited. I know that I am a new parent and learning and trying new things and I do not need to be reminded of my mistakes. I am painfully aware of them and always...

My fave toys were: my books but my Nutcracker Suite Barbie was definitely a close second. I took ballet and loved to make her twirl around in her lovely Swan Queen outfits. I also loved the games Clue and Life The best toy I ever had in early elementary school was my hippity hop! i just got dd a bouncy pony, very similar. Brings back...

My dd and I are very similar and my upbringing was not GD. I grew up resentful, depressed, and snuck...
I had a fussy, high needs baby who grew into a lovely, smart, charming, fussy, high needs toddler. I found Dr. Sears "the fussy baby book" and "the discipline books" to be very appropriate and easy to read.
