  1. Toddler & Child
    Bath time. It is sweet to see siblings bathing together, splashing and playing, but at some point, a parent has to decide when they should separate. This decision is different for every family. It may depend on the age gap between your children or if they are different genders. It may depend on...
  2. Baby
    Welcoming a new baby into the family is a significant event that will not only change your life but the lives of your firstborn children forever. I am eagerly looking forward to the moment my son meets his brother. My son was the first person that I told about my pregnancy. I will never forget...
  3. Family Life
    If I had a nickel every time my oldest daughter asked to have her own bedroom, I'd be a rich woman. Unfortunately for her, there is not another bedroom in this house for her to move into. The good news is, though, she's learning countless lessons that will serve her through her life, by sharing...
  4. Family Life
    All siblings fight at times; that is normal! However, when the fighting never stops, you have to find some ways to cool the flames. My husband grew up an only child. As our first two children started to fight, he was sure that something was wrong with them. These kids must be defective because...
  5. Family Life
    Age gaps between children: It's something many of us think about and weigh carefully as we plan our families. How many kids should we have? Should we have them close together? Should we have them far apart? The reality is that there is no perfect age gap; every option comes with pros and cons...
  6. Gentle Discipline
    Hi everyone, I'm new here and I am so hoping for some advice. I have a 4.5 year old boy and a 20 month old boy. Our older guy has emotional dysregulation and some conduct disorder stuff happening. He's seen a therapist and a OT for a year, but not much has improved. He's been a bit of a handful...
  7. 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...
  8. Baby
    In natural birth and Attachment Parenting circles, it seems to be de rigueur to have siblings at subsequent births. This practice has become more than just a fad relegated to more alternative women. I hear women everywhere discussing issues around siblings at their upcoming births: support...
  9. Life With a Baby
    Hi Everyone, I'm really struggling with this and I'm looking for advice from moms who have more than one child, because man, it really is changing things for me! I have a two-and-a-half year old and a six month old. When I had my first child, I nursed him to sleep for ages and often laid with...
  10. Unschooling
    Our family dynamics are in flux this summer, and that's got me thinking about this issue. It seems to me that unschooled kids, since they don't have the tangibility of grade levels and age-levelled peer groups with which to orient themselves, have their identities formed to a far greater extent...
