I have trouble with odd numbers of children. 1, 3, 5-all tough, 2, 4 and 6 all work out well for me. But, would I have changed that third? The one that is now the baby of the family? Not a bit.View Thread
We have 6 kids with the blended family. I am reading A sane woman's guide to raising a large family by a blogger I know. She has 10 kids-some adopted. Every chapter I read I get baby fever. Luckily my partner and I don't get baby fever at the same time or as often as we did a decade ago.
My three younger ones are about the same age as yours and the only ones left at home. Some days I wonder if I will survive the running around and fetching and just living through middle school with them. But at some part of every day, I want a babe in arms and a toddler running around again.View Thread
Is this his first experience in a school setting? Has he ever been in daycare/preschool or spent time at a mom's morning out or did you ever go to playgroups?

I would suggest you go see a psychologist who can talk to you and your daughter about her destructive behavior. Some toy breakage is to be expected and goodness knows kids don't learn to take care of their stuff quite like they did when our parents were kids-just because they have so much, but it sounds like some family counseling and some new strategies on dealing with this behavior might be good.View Thread
Your oldest sounds like my 14 yo at that age. Unfortunately, now she is 14 and there is very little lamb like about her these days except her tendency to burst into tears. She still loves her family though-her competitive streak shows big time though.View Thread
