Anyone else have a wild child? - Page 2

post #21 of 24
i hear ya! thanks. i have got all the baby weight off...now i'm working on the "real" weight! ugh. 30ish pounds to go. i was just asking you because my son is a horrible sleeper and exceedingly hyper (ok, to be PC, "spirited") but i haven't tried elimination diet. i am so not good at that! i can't give up sugar (yet)! and i have just begun to be able to eat so many things i had to give up for so long b/c he was intolerant of thru my breastmilk (that gave him gas). he doesn't suffer much from gas anymore but sheesh i wish he would calm down some, sometimes!

OK, you've tapped into my big fear. DH has several food allergies/sensitivities and was diagnosed with ADHD as an adult (long childhood history of hyperactivity). We found out in our married lives that it was food triggering the behavior and not a disorder. I hope dd doesn't have the same issues. I can eat almost anything. It would be nice if she could too. Oh, well. If she is sensitive, I know how to find out. Back to beans for us for a while. Let's hope it doesn't come to that.

hey nothing wrong with beans!! im glad i finally get to eat them again, along with chocolate and most salad veggies and cauliflower!! yum!
i guess this is gonna sound awful, but i'd pretty well rather find a way to work with my son's temperament, behavior, and wildness rather than give up chocolate. what a bleak world it would be without that sinfully rich yum-yum!!

My son Teagan also goes by Tarzan and occasionaly Tina. Someone once asked me to be a little stricter with him and that if I didn'y He might turn out to be a wild child. I responded POerfect exactly as I had planned. He is nearing three now and I am now setting firmer limits in regards to respecting others. I find if I strongly beleive in something its much easyer to stay consistent. It's neat the melding of our temperments and reactions and their nature and how everything supports each. Teagn is definately rebellious by nature and I am definately low on limits by nature. we also learn so fully by trying to change the the things that are not supporting.
