I was in the fourth grade when I had my period. There were no signs of pms. I remember peeing in the Target bathroom, looked at my undies, and saw a dot of blood. I thought I was dying. I ran out of the bathroom, found my aunt, and told her what happened. She chuckled and bought me some pads. It is silly to think everyone gets their period the same time/way. I had no boobs, pubic hair, or armpit hair. Just hairy legs.View Thread

My 9 year old granddaughter had this same thing. She goes to the doctor once a week to have medication applied to it, which is a little uncomfortable at first. In two months it was gone. Go find a doctor who knows about this problems and treats it instead of wishing it away. Good Luck.View Thread
I have a friends who's brother has a chemical imbalance and it causes him to hear things. He has gotten very agitated and violent. He was not properly meditated when this happened. Hope everything works out. PS kudos for having such a wonderful bond and trust for your child to come to you with this!View Thread

You may see them sometimes even in Internet Explorer 6 when in a thread.. But IE6 isn't supported well anymore and is full of security risks . Nearly all major sites no longer actively create fixes for IE6 compatibility. (including Google and YouTube)

Using the Old Word Codes: Note-if you make them this way-using them too early in the post means the word will show up on the main page in the snippet that shows there
Type the following without the spaces between each symbol/word:
Rushing my kids comes to no good end. They get slower. Things get forgotten. The more we rush-the later and more stressed the morning becomes for the whole family.
One tip that has worked for me is to ask my slow poke son whether he wants to shower the night before or in the morning before his sister. He chooses before his sister because he knows it irritates her to wait. She is an early riser.
Why does this help my morning? He knows he loses the morning shower "privilege" if he is pokey about getting up and in the shower. Once he showers, he is moving. He gets dressed right away and then gets his breakfast.
Actually, I'm just testing everything out with this new format, so I'm going to dive right in and add a tip just to see how it works!
Winter is a great time to explore nature. Animal tracks are easily visible in the snow. Birds' nests are easily visible in the bare trees.
I like to take my kids on a trail that runs along a nearby river. We follow rabbit tracks to their dens. We look for all sizes of birds nests- including eagles that nest near there! We can find raccoon tracks, etc. We look for hibernating animal dens. It's a great activity for these long winter months!View Thread
