    I hope this finds all of you well. My name is Chris Tompkins and I’m a teacher in Southern California. I wanted to share a recent TEDx talk I gave called, "What children learn from the things they aren’t told." I'm not able to post the link here, but you can find it on Youtube by searching...
  4. The Childhood Years
    My childhood is what Mickey, Tom and Jerry, Peter Pan ... And my son's childhood outside Ipad is Frozen, Spiderman, Frozen, Spiderman and The Frozen ... This is the history Ipad, is my child's childhood. It was disappointing: ... Such good really good? I'm a bit worried!
  5. Toddler & Child
    I've always believed that the greatest gift you could give your child is a sibling. A built-in best friend, life-long buddy, partner-in-crime. Someone who shares the same childhood memories and traditions that you experienced, a riding partner at the amusement park. Someone to cover for you when...
  6. Family Life
    When I first became a mother I was always "there." You know. Answering every question. Watching every special moment. Paying attention so as not to "miss out" or "harm their self esteem." Of course as time went on and I added more and more children to the mix, this became impossible both...
  7. Toddler & Child
          Do you ever have moments that you just know will be funny in another 10 years? I do.   Except I didn't really think it was funny the other day. That is because it happened to me. (I hope that that YOU will find some amusement in this.)   I was in the bathroom today. I don't want...
  8. Gentle Discipline
    <p>I thought I raised my 8 y/o to be responsible. For the past months though, my MIL lived with us (she went back to her home a week ago) and she babied both kids. Ds can't do anything on his own anymore and it frustrates me to no end.</p> <p> </p> <p>I mean, he should be able to zip his own...

  10. The Childhood Years
    <p>Over the last couple of months, DS1 (6) has started putting his fingers in his mouth a lot. Sometimes he keeps his fingers in his mouth, sometimes he licks his hands, sometimes even licks his arms. It's driving me mad! Telling him not to do it is having no impact whatsoever, except from...
  11. The Childhood Years
    <p>My son is suddenly insisting on using a dummy. He told me he wanted one and that he'd use it to help himself when he felt tired, hurt himself, or felt sad. I talked with him about other ways of dealing with those feelings (asking for cuddles, etc), but he was set on the idea. He then said he...
  12. The Childhood Years
    <p>My 6yr old has asked out of the blue if I've ever felt like I loved something so much I want to destroy it.  The first couple of times I didn't pay it much attention but tonight, a tired night, he was physically upset about this. Telling me he loves his stuffed animals so much he wants to...
  13. The Childhood Years
    I have 4 kids and another one on the way. Both my girls, ages 4 and 8, share a room. My 10 year old son has his own room and the 3 year old boy sleeps with me. I have to make room for the baby but am not sure if my youngest son should share a room with his brother. My 10 year old doesn't mind...

  15. The Childhood Years
    <p>Hi!  I'm wondering how people handle it when other people's children tell your children that they don't want to play with them anymore.  I have a 4 1/2 year daughter who spends a lot of time with a 5 year old.  I am friends with her mom so our kids tend to be together a couple times a week. ...
  16. The Childhood Years
    <p>What are your favorite child rearing books?  I guess I have just been feeling a little lost lately with dd.  I feel like I am threatening too much and that maybe we are not having enough fun together.  i feel like she and I "fight" (for lack of a better word) over the same thing everyday...
  17. The Childhood Years
    <p>My 3 year old DS has always been a very curious little guy.... wanting to know how everything works, including our bodies!  When he was 2, he learned that boys have a penis and girls do not.  But now he wants to know what girls <em>do</em> have.  He asked my mom last week where pee comes out...
