• The "unpleasant taste" remains after playdate?

    Best answer: If your children enjoy playing together, this should probably be the priority. Her husband probably knows the score - he knows what she is like, and if it was such a big deal why doesn't he suggest she goes elsewhere. And why does she want to come to you if she is unhappy about your children's relationship?

  • Is this normal for a 1 1/2 year old to be this angry?

    My son gets mad very fast. When he is around other kids. Doesn’t matter what age. He has to be the boss of everyone. If he has some object in his hand. If anyone takes it from him he clentches his fist , scream on the top of his lungs where his veins would come from his neck. And goes to the kid, If he is 3 or 5... show more
    My son gets mad very fast. When he is around other kids. Doesn’t matter what age. He has to be the boss of everyone. If he has some object in his hand. If anyone takes it from him he clentches his fist , scream on the top of his lungs where his veins would come from his neck. And goes to the kid, If he is 3 or 5 doesn’t matter and literally grab their face or hair and pulls it. Or pinch it or grab onto their whole body trying to take them down or bites. Or his someone has something he wants he does the same. And gives them this mean mug face and walks away. Sometimes his cousin is just watching tv minding his own buisnsss. And my son goes up to him and hits him. He doesn’t like him for some reason. I try teaching him abc or whatever. He gets mad bc I keep repeating my self. If he wants the book and gets mad if I don’t give him. If I tell him no he gets really mad .. he hits me , screams at me. Or he throws his head back.. or slams his body on the ground. I always have to catch him when he doesn’t that so he doesn’t hurt his head. He has been doing the throwing head back thing since newborn. I honestly saw anger since very young age. Even pregnant with the hard kicking. If he plays with a moving toy and gets stuck in a tight space,he freaks out gets so angry. I grew up with anger management. And it just stopped since I got pregnant. And his father has anger problems. So I hope it’s nfk genetic. If so,what can I do, how do I prevent him for this all? Is this a normal behavior.

  • My Mother passed away Sept 1 saturday and my five year old isnt coping well?

    Best answer: It does seem normal for daughter to be like this, she was more close to her grandma then you were to her as her daughter. Everybody reacts to death differently, just like how everybody grieves differently, and I suspect that she will be grieving for a long time. But what you need to explain to your young daughter,... show more
    Best answer: It does seem normal for daughter to be like this, she was more close to her grandma then you were to her as her daughter. Everybody reacts to death differently, just like how everybody grieves differently, and I suspect that she will be grieving for a long time. But what you need to explain to your young daughter, while she likes it or not, she can't have her grandmother back, nor she will be coming back. Another thing you need to explain to her, that not all cancers are something that they can fix to save a person's life. You might need to explain that the doctors did what they could to help her, but they found that there couldn't cure this cancer your mom had. If that being the case, you also will have to prepare that god will take everybody that she loves. She might be too young to understand this now, but I am sure she will in a few years. It was good that she was with her other grandparents at the time of your mother's death, mayne you and maybe even her other grandparents can help better explain all this to her.

  • What do I do when my 5 year old gets extremely frustrated when she can’t dress her self?

    Best answer: I actually do think some discipline is in order. Not because she has trouble with the dress, or because she's frustrated, or because she doesn't want help. But because screaming is not an acceptable response to being offered help. She's 5, not 2. That doesn't mean I think you should hit her or... show more

    That doesn't mean I think you should hit her or anything extreme like that. If this were my 5 year old I would probably have let her cool down in her room, and once she calmed down had a little talk about how frustration is no excuse to scream at someone who offers help. Then she would have to apologize.

    Okay, I am at a loss. We are currently doing family therapy and have been for close to 2 years. My 5 yr old daughter hurts my 3 yr old on a regular basis.

    Okay, I am at a loss. We are currently doing family therapy and have been for close to 2 years. My 5 yr old daughter hurts my 3 yr old on a regular basis. She claws his back, his face, his arms, pinches his cheeks hard enough to leave a mark etc. she’s smart enough to know to do when I’m not standing right there, like the 2 min I’m gone to the bathroom. She has drawn blood on a number of occasions. She used to bite him all over and that finally stopped last year. I have tried kindly stopping her and telling her she can’t do that and why (when I’ve seen it happen), I’ve tried time-outs, I’ve tried taking away things she likes like favorite tv shows, I’ve tried reward charts for not doing it, I’ve finally resorted to yelling on two occasions recently. I have also tried to separate them as much as possible so they have adequate breaks from each other. I know sibling fighting is normal but this seems extreme (with the blood and all). The therapist (this is the second one) has pretty much said keep doing what I’m doing; but I am concerned about the toll it’s taking on my 3 yr old. Does anyone have suggestions or experience with this?

    Best answer: Can you? Probably. Will it sound ok? Probably not. Will you blow the other sub? Probably.

    Without telling us the brand and model of amplifier so we can look up the specs, and without telling us which model of L7 you have, we cannot help you avoid trouble. I can tell you this. It's hard to blow a sub like an L7 unless you're doing something drastically wrong, such as using improper gain and bass boost settings, or using an amplifier that is inadequate for the job or wired incorrectly.

    To sum up, this question has the word dumbass written all over it. .

  • Time for a new one?

    We have a sectional sofa that no longer fits in our apartment. We moved to a bigger place, and the living room is a tad smaller.

    We have a sectional sofa that no longer fits in our apartment. We moved to a bigger place, and the living room is a tad smaller. We've been considering getting a new one for a few months, but we were still making payments on the set we had. It's only 4 years old, and now it's paid. However, my son decided to do some redecorating and spray painted a large section with the bright pink we had for my daughter's room. Between the paint and their nightly accidents (potty training has been hell), we're thinking of throwing this one away. DH refused to bring in an outside company to deep clean it after the potty accidents and didn't clean it up right away--let it sit for days before attempting to clean it, so God only knows if there's mold inside the cushions. And now the paint.... I just want to cut our losses and get a cheaper, smaller couch. He still wants it! With 3 kids under 5, 1 in pk with homework every night that takes FOREVER, I'm not willing to spend what little time I get at the end of the day stressing over cleaning a couch. But we have an agreement that anything that's going to be used by the whole family is discussed first. At this point, would you just replace it? Tks

    I have been trying to get my daughter to sleep in her own room because she is going to be 5 soon and I really want her to be sleeping on her own when she starts school but she won't.

    I have been trying to get my daughter to sleep in her own room because she is going to be 5 soon and I really want her to be sleeping on her own when she starts school but she won't. When I try to put her in her own room, she screams, if I ignore her she throws a tantrum and screams herself into a frenzy until she just can't stop. A few times where I have just tied to ignore her screaming and tantrums she has purposefully weed her bed so that she can't sleep in it because it's wet. I have tried telling her stories and staying in the room with her until she falls asleep but she doesn't sleep the whole night through even, she's up at least once if not twice through the night and then she won't go back in her room, with all the tantrums and theatrics just the same. I have two other children, both of whom slept with me until they were ready to start school but I didn't have this much trouble getting them to sleep in their own rooms. They still did want to sleep with me every now and again when they had a bad dream or just were not feeling well but in general, once they got used to their room,.they were okay with it. My daughter though is being extremely stubborn. Have any of you had a similar problem with your little ones and how did you get them to stay in their rooms.

    My son is 5 years old, and my mother in law wont stop harping for me to send him to kindergarten in the fall. He has some developmental delays. Is currently in ot and pt, as well as speech therapy. His teachers from last year recomend him to stay in the cese program. She texts and calls every week at least once to demand I put him in kindergarten. My husband agreed with me at first, but now she has talked him into putting my son in kindergarten. She wants me to put hhim the special ed program, but I feel if I do that he will be behind his classmates his whole life and if I can avoid it by having him catch up in the cese it makes more sense. Mind you she is the daycare provider but only 3 days a week, and the cese program is only a half of a day. I dont feel he is ready and dont want to set him up for failure. Am I being ridiculous???
