I have that. I got to listen to two dentists talk about how each would cut it as if I weren't there when I was 7. Somehow, neither way happened and I still have it. No problem for me at all. My...

Observe other boys that age. Most of them grab or rub their penises a lot. Why would a kid not, unless he had fully ingrained the societal taboo? I don't think many of them do by 5-1/2.

WaturMama - I am too! It's not that I am confused about which direction I mean. I see things very clearly in my head. I just often get the words crossed.

This is not an opinion based on...

Sounds like my son at 4, he's 6 now. He still has tantrums that are I think more and more intense than average for his age, but they are MUCH less frequent and much shorter than before.

"I just wanted to say, I am sorry people were arguing on your post"

It's OK, I don't mind the "arguing." It gives me a lot to think about and explore. I really appreciate all the input.

Daughter with ADHD can't go to sleep

This is a Ritalin-independent thing. Seems no different from before she took it, or day she does not take it: she just has a hard time settling down. She (7) and her brother (6) share bunk beds,...

We've done the crafts take-home thing, but then we just quit giving party bags at all. Nobody seems to have missed them. Good parties are fun all by themselves. So no, I wouldn't buy them.
