I would let him carry on with his naps. How long is he sleeping at night? He might be trying to compensate for nights that are too short for him by napping. When does school start? What will the times be like?View Thread
The vaccine is a pregnancy category C - that means that insufficient tests have been carried out to rule out risks. In some cases it may be recommended because the potential benefits outweigh the risk. The best she can do is to consult her ob/gyn about this.
If you don't mind me asking, why the risk? Why not wait until after the baby is born?View Thread
The big problem here is your husband, not the children. He is refusing to parent. If I were you, I'd insist on parenting classes (go together) for him. His children are acting up because they want attention and he isn't giving them that. Children need limits and boundaries - it makes them feel secure.
Really, your husband needs to do something about this NOW while there is still time. In a few short years it will be too late to help them. It's not the lack of opportunities to spend time with them that is the root problem here it is your husband's refusal to take any kind of responsibility nor be an active parent. He needs to wake up to what he is doing to his children - by being passive he is not helping them, he is actually handicapping them. How will they ever survive in the outside world if nobody teaches them how to behave?
I would also be worried about the safety of a toddler with these children around ...View Thread
