    Best answer: If a 6 yo boy is so addicted to TV that he's not interested in going to the park, or tossing a baseball back and forth, or kicking a soccer ball around, there's something definitely wrong.

    Best answer: If a 6 yo boy is so addicted to TV that he's not interested in going to the park, or tossing a baseball back and forth, or kicking a soccer ball around, there's something definitely wrong. Someone needs to talk to the parents. Unless the kid is physically disabled somehow, you could try taking him out for ice cream, and try to engage with him (by talking) on the way. Maybe he just needs a buddy to hang out with, rather than a guard.

    Best answer: Our now 25 year old daughter used to put herself to sleep on the floor in the living room every night. She did that until she was about 2 1/2 when we started tucking her in to bed at night to go to sleep.

    What we didn't do was the middle of the night bottle at that age because we did sleep training early on so she learned to put herself back to sleep after waking.

    Solve Your Child's Sleep Problems by Dr. Richard Ferber is a good book which might give you some direction. If you know that you can't tolerate any crying at all, you will have to go on with her coming in to bed with you probably until she is three or four years old.

  • Why do liberals claim to be against religious fundamentalism when they support Islam?

    I don't get it. Liberals claim fundamentalism is evil and Freedom of speech and religion is an asset, yet they stick up for Muslims and Islam when it is 100x more barbaric than any other religion on the planet. Take a look at Saudi Arabia and Iran and then get back to me about how much Freedom of Speech and... show more

Liberals have failed us when it comes to theocratic governments.

  • What is your potty training experience? Was it easy? Did you have to bribe your child or give some kind of reward when they did it good?

    Best answer: It's easy when the child is ready and able to learn, hard when the child is not ready. The child should capable of indicating the need to go, making it to the bathroom on their own, and be able to remove the necessary (minimal) clothing by themselves. If you try to do it earlier, you're just making it harder on both of you.

    Plan on staying home for a couple of weeks during the training period. Toddlers can't wait while you search for a bathroom.

    My son is three and keeps telling me he has no friends yet and wants friends. He is not in daycare or preschool yet so I k ow that takes away some opportunity. But his own cousins want nothing to do with him. When they are at our house he will take them to his toys and letvthrm choose what to play with. When he tries to join in they yell at him to leave them alone. At their houses they yell at him if he tries to even touch one of their toys. At parks he spends his time talking to other kids that won't answer him. If he tries to swing or slide with them the other kids stop playing. Other parents tell me he seems so bright and friendly. Yet we always leave with him telling me that he hasn't made friends yet. He always seems so sad when he gives up and sits down watching the other kids play. When I ask if he wants to play with me he just says he wants to go home now. So what can I do if anything to help him make friends?

  • Daycare providers who smoke.?

    Best answer: Depends. Does she smoke around the kids? When the kids are gone, does she smoke in the rooms she uses for daycare? If she smokes before the kids arrive, does she shower and change into freshly laundered clothes? If the answers to those questions are no, then there's nothing to disclose.

    I'm a nanny for 4 kids under the age of 4. I love all of the kids and have always been kind and gentle with them. I play with them and read them TONS of books everyday. I take them outside. I always speak kindly and respectfully to them, but I do discipline them as necessary, as requested by the parents, which usually just includes putting them in a timeout and having a talk with them. I have never raised my voice or done anything for them to dislike me, yet whenever I come in the morning they yell "nooooo. not again" or "I want my old nanny" and I have no idea why. Usually as the day goes on they will tell me they like me or that they were just saying that, but the next day I come back they do the same thing over again and want their old nanny. I've been with them for 7 months. I've never had any issues with kids not liking me in the past and I'm going to school to be a pediatric nurse. Any suggestions?!
