Please, have him evaluated! Talk to your pediatricain if you do not know where to start. It is in his best interest. Especially if it runs in the family. Diagnosible or not he needs help before it causes real problems, if it hasn't already. Best of luck to you.View Thread
Yes, I read a similar article a few days ago. It makes sense to me. Seat belts are made to hold in adults who weigh a few hundred pounds. My husband does all the car seat installing in my family and I believe he would agree the LATCH system is easier. Perhaps they will start making new cars with stronger LATCH anchors.View Thread
It's not a drop-side is it? Those are banned and you can't sell them. Just an FYI. Not looking forward to just throwing ours away when we are done using it. I am all for safety but kind of seems like a waste. Good luck!View Thread
I think you handled it right the first time. However, since it happened again, I would go to the parents, if you have not done that already. I am sure it will be awkward, but they should know what happened so they can have a discussion with their son. Have another long discussion with your son. I would probably monitor their play for a while as well. Good luck.View Thread
Sounds really frustrating! My kids are not slow eaters, but my son will push his plate away while I am handing it to him. I also try not to make a big deal of it because I don't want to create food issues. As long as she is eating and wants to eat I don't think I would worry about the slow eating issue. Clean up around her and go about your day. Maybe she will get tired of eating alone and learn to eat faster. Have you talked to the pedi about the chewing and cheeking? Maybe she has a sensory issue you need to explore? Just a thought, good luck!View Thread
We seem to have the same problem with DD about every other week. I am pretty sure she is holding it in because she has BM smears in her underwear. I think she holds it in because it hurts to go. Other times I think she just doesn't want to stop playing! But it is SO furstrating! When I mentioned it to the pedi at her last appointment she suggested daily prunes. We buy the individually wrapped ones and she will eat one every day. We call it a "big raisin." I think it helps a little. Lots of praise also works well with her. We get really excited when she goes in the potty and doesn't dirty her pants. I even gave her a sucker last time I was so excited and this made her really happy as well!View Thread
My great-grandmother, my grandmother and my mother suffer from migraines. Now I do too. They got worse after the birth of my second child. My DD has told me a few times her "head hurts." She goes about playing and won't mention it again so I have never had to give her any meds. I hope it stays this way for a while. Migraines are not fun and would hate for her to have to deal with them. Especially at such a young age. Good luck, I hope they figure something out that's fixable!View Thread
I hear ya! My car said 7 degrees this morning. We live in MN but it should be closer to 30 degrees this time of year. SO sick of the cold weather and wind. I can't wait for spring so we can get out side more often.View Thread
Not sure if I can help much, just relate! My son is 19 months. He tries to fight diaper change as well. However, he has had a rash on and off for a few months so I think that's his issue, he is afraid it will hurt. We have also noticed an increase in screaming behavior over the last few months. I think it's a communication problem. He isn't really talking yet and doesn't know how else to tell us what he wants. I try to be firm. For example, you can't stand and scream about a snack, it's either A or B, if you don't chose, then nothing. Honestly, I have even walked away for a few minutes so we can both calm down. Good luck!View Thread
In our state Kindergarten screening is done between 3 1/2 - 4 year of age. This way if there is an issue it can be worked on before school starts. We had my DD screened last summer. I got to watch. They tested hearing, vision, langugage development, phyisical development. It was pretty detailed. But DD had fun! She has a November birthday so will have to wait until 2014 to start school. She is already looking forward to it. We just signed her up for pre-school to start next fall.View Thread
