I'm a little confused. So when he invites a kid over for a playdate, do they play well together as I thought I got from your first post, or is there no chemistry? I do understand there's a lot of...

My modesty wained the longer I breastfed. The real delay for getting me out of the house was that I didn't know about baby wraps, and all I had was a baby Bjorn. My daughter was too small for it...

Your kids really don't sound bad. They're not doing anything mean, they're just trying to avoid doing things they don't want to do. That seems normal to me. Sure it's behavior you want to change,...

This thread actually does mention the sister, somewhere back in there. Not that it makes that much difference. I too believe that mental health care is needed.

Heather, I can't imagine professionals at my kids' school acting or talking that way. This just isn't right. I wish you strength in this situation and wish I knew of some concrete help to give you....

I am no expert in newborns, but I agree with Meepycat - try as I might I cannot figure your pediatrician's math.

If the pediatrician meant "6 pounds 7 ounces" (103 ounces) and "5 pounds 2...

My kids are 7-1/2 and 9, so it's been a while, but we always ordered 2-4 vials at a time. It seemed like a good compromise between having to order all the time and stocking up too much and ending up...

I second the PP's response.

We had a lot of trouble with my son's behavior, in part because he had very inconsistent parenting from 2-3 when I had cancer, and in part because he's a kid who...

What your school has told you does strike me also as a great, big load of "it."

"Testing" doesn't isolate anybody. Using labels to treat people in ways that isolate them is what isolates people. ...

A few thoughts.

First, it's certainly possible for a pretty young kid to buy a vibrator. Way back in the 1980's, as soon as I got my driver's license, I drove to Sears and got a "massage" device....
