Since you can't approach this in a cooperative way with the other parents, I'd cut it off. Maybe allow very limited play with a parent present, nothing else. Your son is probably too young to...

My son shares some behaviors with your daughter. He's almost 7 now and we've had him in play therapy for about 6 months. It's no miracle, but it does help. We're coming to consider my son as a kid...

I know not every parent on these boards is in our situation, but from the past posts it looks like a lot of you are like my partner and me, two women. We have two kids, girl, 8, and a boy, 7. We've...

No, but I don't let my kids surf Youtube. I'll surf with them, but only at most weekly. It's almost all animal stuff or music.

That's great that you're all learning to do it. I don't play tennis, but I wish my kids would be willing to try it. I wish I had learned something I could play all my life.
