I would have liked to have said that hitting someone is only teaching that it's OK to be a bully if your bigger. I mean, honestly, what does she think that she's teaching. "you do something I don't like and I'll hit you. That'll teach ya." Is that the way the world should work? Truthfully, I probably wouldn't even say that because I get more shy than I would like. I would probably say what I do. (talk to the kid and explain why we don't hit. "hitting hurts" "look...
mom2joseph- As I have said before...I agree that she should have moved when he came in. I have also said that a reasonable solution would be for her to be able to sit there but to move away a little before we expect DH home from work. locking the door while she is sitting there would make no possibility for injuries. She can just simply get up, unlock the door and wait for the person to come in before she sits again. She is 12. I do not feel that asking her "Do you...
delphiniumpansy- the heater in question is a radiator. It cannot be moved. yes she could have put more cloths on. but, sometimes she (and I) just like to sit by the radiator never the less. the thermostat is set at 67. I feel this is a reasonable temp. we've tried the "code word" thing. DH just is unwilling to abide by this. the problem with discussing what to do i the future is that we disagree with what to do. He wants punishments and feels that if the child...
Ok. How am I supposed to handle situations with my child when my DH absolutely disagrees with my style of parenting? Lets make it easier to answer... My dd is in a bad mood and sitting next to the heater (wich happens to be next to the front door). DH comes in hits her with the door (wich is unavoidable if someone is sitting there) He says she cannot sit there. She says that she wants to. He said that she has to move. (this is now while he is taking off his boots....

I know what yo mean. ds goes through stretches like this. Luckily they don't go on forever. I usually don't wake up all of the way most of the time. But, the way I ending up contorting my body puts a number on my back. do you talk to her about it before you go to sleep. May be that and a sippy of water by the bed might help. Good luck:
I've heard that brewers yeast works well. Some women swear by it. I don't see any reason why it would hurt to eat while pregnant. I'll be keeping my eye on this thread
I don't have any advice either. the only thing I can answer you is the part about general anesthesia. I had an emergency c-section and it required a general anesthesia. (tried a home birth...didn't work out. but thats another story) They let me nurse DS as soon as they thought I was with it enough to hold him myself. Makes me nervous now that I think of it. i wonder how many drugs where getting into his system. I'm keeping my eye on this post. good luck with...
I also have no advice for you. My DS does the same thing. He used to have to pinch my other nipple. But, now he'll settle with just putting his hand on it (after I remind him that the pinching hurts). I'm going to be keeping my eye on this thread just incase anyone finds something that works.
I'm glad I'm not the only one with a pinch/twister! DS has been doing it from a very early age. I have to say that at first it didn't bother me because I had such a strong let down that I had to hold it anyway (to avoid milk being squirt everywhere). It gave me a free hand when nursing. But, then he did more than just pinching it gently (the nipple). It can be tooooooo much most of the time. Now (and for a long time now) my letdown doesn't make me squirt. But, I...
