I would look into the hormonal thing, if he is on any medications it may be that it needs to be adjusted. I am from a blended family and I was a step Mom, it is not an easy job and those that are called on to do it are special people. Just remember that even though he was young when his mother and father split up he may have lasting memories about the abuse and he may think that is the way he is supposed to treat her. I suggest intensive therapy to get over his anger and possibly some type of physical activity to encourage him to get out and be social.View Thread
Counseling, family counseling, you and your ex have to be able to communicate about your daughter for your sake and hers. I know that this is not easy especially depending on the reason for the split but you must put your daughter first. I know that in my State you are required to take parenting classes if you have children and are divorcing.View Thread
I don't think this is anything to worry about, I get hot when I sleep, but am cool during the day. I think everyones body just cycles through the day. I know that my temp during the day runs low as does my daughters, I took her temp everyday for a month just to get a good read on where she is.
That being said she sweats at night, I have found that we can not use the blanket sleepers for her to sleep in, even in the dead of winter because she wakes up sweaty and her hair is matted to her head from the sweat.View Thread
I think you need to find a new counselor and possibly take some anti anxiety and or anti depressant medications to help. LIfe can be overwhelming at times but you have to take care of yourself in the end. Take a deep breath and try to think about what is best for you all the way around.View Thread
You need to have a full blood panel done on your children, they need to test for poisons as well and toxins, it sounds like there is something going on with a toxin either in the air or water or somewhere in their environment. I would definatly push this with the doctor because loosing your nails like that is not normal nor is it healthy. I would do this asap like tomorrow if you can. This is imperitive. I would also possibly have a water study done in your home and testing for lead paint and asbestos.
If you can switch to bottled water, either in the small bottles or get a Culligan system or something to help control that as well. Just a few suggestionsView Thread
I say don't do it, when I was first pregnant before we knew we were having a girl, my husband and I talked about it (he is circumsized) but we decided to not circ if we had a boy since I agree with you there is no need for it and why put them through the pain, if they decide to do it later in life they can make that decision.View Thread
A baby will not allow them selves to starve if you are offering food, she is obviously doing fine and if the doctors all say she is fine there is no need to worry, every child is different and she may just have a different metabolism than your son so try not to worry yourself to death, my daughter has days that she would only eat an oz or two all day but then some days it was like she couldn't get enough to eat, give her a break and as long as she is gaining and still on her same growth pattern there is no need to worry.View Thread
There will not be much if any candy in my daughters easter backst, she is only 14 months so she doesn't eat candy anyway. I try to make sure what ever is in the basket will represent the reason we are celebrating.View Thread
