Also, cows milk just has a HUGE amount of sugar in it, doesn't it? So I'm slowly switching over to soy milk for the kids and they're both calming down a bit. I wonder... Those are all awesome strategies! The thing about soy though... NOOOOOOOOO!!!!! Don't do...

Truly sorry for the rudeness and offense, but for sure, it is warranted towards this...
Yes, profoundly gifted twins, it turns out. Was a wild ride! We loved all the Montessori manipulatives at your kids age and also lots of Uncle Milton stuff like the working solar system and lots of Magic School Bus stories and remember the Montessori global map puzzles and such. Keep her more occupied. She's BORED to tears probably and acting out on her NEEDS to learn. We don't often GET that these kids are STARVING for information in their fast learning brains. They are...
OP: It sounds like a dairy issue. Have you totally, completely, unequivocally eliminated ALL dairy from her diet? See if that changes her in about 3 days to up to 2 weeks. No yogurt, no cheese, no milk, no butter. Not in a cup, not in cooked foods, not in pancakes nor cookies, not in cereal. I'd just eliminate all soy and gluten too, since they all 3 are sister foods and have a great deal to do with behaviours in children (and adults too sometimes). It's an easy test to...
Oh, no, it's not like that. She wanted to go where her brother went. It was totally, totally her choice. He refused to go to those schools and she went where he was going. But I am thinking just maybe I will call up the local private school and see if they will even take her a week into the school year. They may not. And if not, I can homeschool her this year and she can go to private next year if that's what she wants.
My son loved his first day of Kindy. My dd, no so much. She came home and burst into tears. My heart is breaking for this child. She loved EVERY single private school we tried but her twin brother didn't and so we tried the local public school, which everyone loves. She hates it. I am truly thinking I will pull her out in 2 weeks if she doesn't come home raving happy next week. She's a sad little thing and quiet and that's not her at all. For sure, this is the exact...
If you want to develop the left brain more, you could do Interactive Metronome exercises with your son daily. You could buy a Metronome from Sam Ash or whatever music store, and set it for 1 minute on 40rpm and then have the boy tap his *right* hand for the 1 minute to the beep, then tap his right foot for another 1 minute. Then set the metronome to 60rpm and have him tap his right hand for 1 minute to the beep and then for one minute tap his foot to the beep. That's it....
this sounds like Sensory issues OR it could be a food allergy (sounds weird, I know). Try to eliminate gluten, soy, corn and dairy and see if her sensory issues (such as biting) calm down. They most often do, since food allergies will masquerade as Sensory issues. Otherwise, after 3 weeks of no dairy, no gluten (wheat, barley, rye), no soy, no corn, I would take her for a good Occupational Therapist evaluation for Sensory Issues. ((hugs)) It's not easy to parent when there...

Too bad, but we are all ok with how it worked out early and not...
A real calling for sweet foods can be a sign of protein insufficiency. : I would try feeding him a lot more protein, such as hard boiled and scrambled eggs, meat, gluten free chicken nuggets, gluten free fish sticks, coleman hot dogs, cubed turkey, tuna salad, chicken salad. I'd also eliminate gluten and if that seemed to help curb his appetite I might try to eliminate dairy and see if that helps also. I'd also avoid soy. We have a whole shelf of foods for our kids to...
