DH and I are both very sun-sensitive, and wear sunglasses all the time. DS, however... well, he has a lot of sensory defensiveness with his head, so sunglasses are really a struggle for him. But we keep trying, because he refuses to wear a hat for the same reason.View Thread
I would suggest that you bring it up with both. It could be that the brain damage has caused issues with early hormonal development. They will likely refer you to another specialist. Good luck!View Thread
We are getting ours delivered on Monday, actually! It's a wooden one. While we only have 1 kiddo, we wanted to go with wood and plastic because of the heat here (metal wouldn't get played on much in July/august!). I think it's going to end up being a daily activity once it's put together, and I hope it will last us for many years to come.View Thread
I wish we could, BUT, DS has a severe speech delay, and uses a communication on the iPad. If he ASKS to watch something (either on TV or youtube), we allow it for the most part, because it encourages communication (both verbal, and with his AAC). But it wouldn't hurt for us to cut back, I suppose. View Thread
I give it in the morning, because that's when he's thirstiest, and we just get it out of the way. It goes in his juice. He usually is a morning pooper now, but since he only goes to school in the afternoons, it's ok. I'm not sure how it will all work next school year when it's all day.
We had to play with the dosages too, and still have to change it up sometimes, depending on what all he's been eating and or drinking. But it definitely works!View Thread
Poor little sweetie! I didn't see your other post yesterday to reply in time, but I think it's good that your DH has been talked out of the trampoline. Somehow, it seems like a bounce house type thing would be safer - I don't think you get quite as much air time... we went to a birthday party last month and there were a bunch of kids playing on a trampoline. They were playing a game called "crack the egg" where there were 2 kids laying in the middle, and the other kids were jumping, trying to bounce the eggs. It freaked me out so much that I wouldn't let DS go in the trampoline.
I'm really glad your DD doesn't have any breaks!View Thread
Is there something else that she's eating? Maybe it's not the milk at all. My DS gets gassy when he eats too many grapes (which is really unfortunate because he LOVES them!). I would avoid Soy milk - studies have shown that there is a higher amount of estrogen in soy, and that's not really good for kids. You could try almond or rice milk as an alternative. Is it just milk, or ALL dairy products. I think if you eliminated ALL dairy, you could get a better idea as to whether or not that is the real problem. Good luck!View Thread
I think the worst thing you can do is to try to force it. Do they WANT to learn? I think if they don't, I might wait. By the way, this is coming from someone with a college degree in music, who HATED being told to practice. It's just something to think about...View Thread
