    I agree with Suja. I think he is fine, but then again, I know you and how in tune you are with your kids' health, eating habits, etc. How tall is he? How big were you and your dbf as children? And...

    Poor girl! You're doing her such a favor by helping her learn these things now. She'll really be ahead of her peers in self-awareness and self-control when she's older.

    That's a good one, B! In my own struggles with anxiety I learned a thought exercise where I imagine the worry or the obsessive thought is on a piece of paper inside my head. I imagine crumpling it up...

    Your dd has a very good appetite! I find it hard not to admire it because my 4 yo seems to live on air sometimes. I think her diet sounds great for the most part, though I agree with pp that you...

    We had an upset at bedtime last night, but it was because we'd watched Despicable Me 2. She enjoyed it when we watched it (she loves the minions) but apparently there was a scene that, upon further...

    That was our original plan - she was going to start at the community college next year, but probably not full time. But she would need to complete at least 60 units - enough for an AA degree - to be...

    This is a very pertinent question for us at the moment, too. DD1 is in 10th grade. She's done algebra 1 twice, so she could really understand it, and would like to never ever do math again. She is...
