    Oh no! That's not really a smart arse comment...lots of young children do that. IME, kids would be eager to raise their hand and then either be too shy or forget what they were going to say.

    He did not go to preschool, so that alone is a big adjustment for him. He says he likes school and that he wants to do well. He is not phased by having to be separated or when the teacher has to...

    Thank you. A couple years ago when we were concerned about anxiety and sensory issues, our pedi just said to get a referral through our insurance company...not that helpful. I do love him for...
  5. first week of school and behavior issues...already

    On Monday, DS1 told me that he wasn't listening. He's going through a phase of being dishonest and then telling me was just joking hours later. Well, I emailed the teacher to ask about his behavior...

    It's like you are reading my mind with the unstructured time. DS1 has never been in a school setting where he is told what to do. He needs time to unwind. He is used to having most of his day being...

    Thanks for all your replies. Now I don't feel so bad about telling MIL I don't want her coming over on school nights right now.



    That's what I would like, too. MIL is very intense. She plans...

    after school time

    For those of you who have school-aged children, what are your afternoons like?

    DS1 started half-day kindergarten, and has really only attended 2 days so we don't have a routine yet. He goes in...

    As someone who deals with an overbearing MIL, I have to ask, how often do you go and visit her? It's hard since your DH isn't on board, but I was thinking that if she doesn't like the way you...

    I am not in this situation, but I can understand how you would feel left out. If they are attending her grandchildren's events, but not yours, that's not really fair. Can you talk to your dad and...

    I help them. At night, they are sent to go clean their toy while I clean up after dinner. Most nights, they end up just playing, which is fine, too. When I am done, I help them clean. I divide up the...

    Have you heard of Mosquito Platoon? I have heard good things about them, and I think they use natural stuff, but I am not positive.

    DH was home last night, and we still snacked and ate random stuff for dinner. It happens! As long as they are fed, that's what matters!

    We just use cups and plastic boats. I've used foam things, too. My kids have a set with road tracks and cars, but they rarely use it.

    We are sending our first to school, too. DS is/was nervous, but he has met a bunch of kids who are also going to kinder, so that is helping him feel more excited about it. Could you find out when...

    My son is 3, and he rarely falls. He really only falls if he trips or isn't watching where it is going. It's not due to lack of balance or coordination. He can kick a ball, stand on one leg, dance,...

    No, I do not think you are asking too much. If my child is invited to a party at a home (he is 5), and I do not know the parents, I would not drop them off. If it was at a venue, then maybe. I, also,...

    My kids' favorite thing to do with play-doh is make food. We make meals, and they cook it for me in their play kitchen. I don't love them to play unsupervised because they make a mess. Recently, they...

    Thanks. I am afraid to wait, though. Next week, I am working full-time from home over 40 hours, and I really can't take time off (I am taking over for someone temporarily) and then the following week...

    DS developed a rash on his bum over the weekend. He is not in diapers, and DH put jean shorts on his with no underwear on one of the hottest days, so I thought maybe it was irritation. I put some...
