And the reason that I haven't seen him in a year is because his dad moved out of state and has stalled, canceled and stonewalled visitation with one excuse after another. I finally said he could make visitation plans with me or I could go to the friend of the court on Monday and suddenly he decided to be a little more reasonable. 
No, it's not my son who spoke to me that way, it's his father.
Yes I think you hit the nail on the head.  Trust me this is just one instance where he has spoken to me like this. He's pretty convinced that he's the only one with a brain in the world. I just needed some outside perspectives to help me see the situation clearly. thank you all very much. :)
It sounds to me like you are doing great so far! I'm confused by your sister because you say she's gay and some kind of early childhood expert, but I don't agree that it's "normal" for 5 year olds to strongly identify as their "own" gender. Gender permanance- the idea that your biological sex will not change, doesn't even solidify til 6 or 7. By the same token 5 year olds don't even know that they can't grow up to be a girrafe or a toaster.   I would give your child...
I like a lot of kids movies and shows (actually quite a big fan of Barney and Barney songs). Some things I hate like Teletubbies and Max and Ruby (Ruby just constantly tells max no no no no no it gets on my nerves!!!!), Cailu, The Regular Show, and Big Time Rush. Most of the things I don't like I would probably try to steer my kids away from, or if they loved it I would put a limit on it. For example Sponge Bob is funny for a while but unfortunatly is on hours and hours...
Breastfeeding after 1 year was difficult for me in terms of support. Many people disaprove and they let you know. MY doctor didn't like it but my babies doctor was good with it and so since MY doc wasn't a baby or child doctor in any way, I didn't give his opinion any more credance than non-medical people.   You should probably try to find a group of extended bf moms, through LLL or the internet or whatever. If possible, some that you can meet with in person! When...
I am the non-custodial parent of an 11 year old boy who lives in a different state. Due to circumstances, it's been a year since I've seen him and I have an upcoming visit with him soon. He has a tablet which he plays video games on and I asked if he was bringing it. His dad said he wasn't sure but that if he does there is a rule that no one can play with it except him. This is because he apparently is very posessive of it and flipped out because one of his cousins...
Oh and I'm not really into sports so I don't enjoy running around outside much!!! I'm much more of an indoors person. And REALLY BAD MAMMA- I didn't like teaching them to ride bikes!!! Not gonna run behind you and hold your seat for hours, ugg just no! They all learned, either with someone else's help or under their own steam. My daughter taught herself how to swim! Not because I didn't want to or anything but simply because she insisted on being in the deep end of the...
I don't mind make-believe play, but I do have an issue with making dolls talk and stuff. For some reason even as a kid who enjoyed playing house and other pretend play, I would dress up my barbies and then... nothing! I remember being bored with a lot of sit on the floor play when my kids were little. Somebody said Play-doe and I HATE IT! Clay is ok, I just can't stand the smell of playdogh. It grosses me out and I hate having it touch the table or anything!!!!...
