  • Don't let people stress you out @1happymom . Most of the time, mom knows what their child needs.
  • Another good plant to add to your bedroom is the snake plant. It filters out some toxins from the air and makes your air quality better. I have always had one in my room. You can also use Jasmine plants. They are really pretty but I seem to always k…
  • @yogimama . You may really be surprised at how affordable it really is. When you have some extra help at home, you feel better about cooking instead of grabbing take out. You have time to plan things out a little better and you will have a clearer h…
  • @teachingmom , if I remember right, it was a little over a month and then it was over. We didn't make a big deal out of it and soon enough, he was all good.
  • They expect children to come into the school system with a greater level of maturity than they used to. He may know the things he needs to know, and he may be socialized but make sure that he is mature enough to sit still and is able to communicate …
  • I used a small adjustable lamp in my kids rooms. It it put out less light than than the overhead but still put out a lot of light. It may have been more than needed but it was just a small phase in life that they went through. If I didn't make a big…
  • Good points from all! I would like to add that someday these small children will be teenagers and grown adults. They may not appreciate every aspect of their young lives being put out there for everyone to see. Say that Junior becomes CEO of a multi…
  • If you can afford some help I say, "Go for It!". The more time that you have for yourself and other important things the better. It will give you greater peace of mind and you can concentrate on other things.
  • I like the idea of paying them for chores that you don't ask them to do! That is a great one.
  • You have to find health care providers that you can trust. Think of your first visit with them as a job interview. If this person is not someone that you feel comfortable talking to and asking questions then you need to find someone else. They need…
  • in our state, child support is figured using a formula. The formula uses ratios of the father's income vs. the mother's income and adjusted for the time that the child spends with each parent. A friend of mine is divorced from her husband and even t…
  • With my oldest, I was there for five days. i had a lot of complications with her and I really needed to be there. With the other four i was straight home the next day. I have always been lucky to have lots of support from my family and with the exce…
  • We are religious but we do not christen our babies. We believe that being baptized is a choice for each individual. Therefore, you must be old enough to know what are you are doing before a baptism is necessary. As for guardianship of the children,…
  • When my oldest son was small, he had an ear infections almost every week. The doctors could not figure out what was going on. I read and read everything I could get a hold of. I eventually tried alternating small amounts of echinacea and acidopholu…
  • There are a few things that could be going on here. If you have been consistent in giving consequences and if you have tried modeling your behavior so that he can follow, there may be other things at work here. Not having a first hand knowledge of y…
  • @ChaosMum you are so right. It is one of the things I hate to see most in the world. If you have a child screaming then the last thing you need to do is scream back. It is sending the totally wrong message. You have to be the adult and show them how…
  • I have tried it both ways. It depends on where you are at in life. When I had my older children and had fewer options than I do now and I thought about things differently. Back then I really enjoyed working and wanted to get back to my kind of norma…
  • Good afternoon everyone! I am an old seasoned mother of five and have really enjoyed reading some of the threads here. I am 42 years old and a mother of 5 children, aged 26, 21, 18, 17 and 10. I have two grandchildren that are 4 and 7 that I care fo…
