Well, I'm not an inattentive parent. I wouldn't allow my child to bully another child, take a toy away, take another child's turn or even climb up the slide. I have told kids that aren't mine "No" if they are agressive. But I"m just saying "good luck trying to parent other people's kids"...

I felt that way after I had my third. I wanted to get pregnant right away! It was a burning desire. It ended up taking almost 2 years before I was expecting again, and I had that burning desire the whole time!! Rebecca
Hi, This morning my 5 year old said the bottom of both big toes hurt. I looked and there is a small red circle spot on the bottom of each toe. I looked at my two big toes, and I have the same thing! We have been swimming every day and the concrete is burning hot. Its not a far walk to the pool, but it is super hot. Please tell me these are blisters from hot asphalt and NOT plantar warts.
