I agree with the PP. It really depends on the child. We chose to send my 4 year old, now 5 year old the pre-school this year. She will attend Kidergarten in the fall. Our main reason was for socialization with other kids. I stay home part time. When I work she stays with grandparents. Therefore, not around other kids much. She knows her numbers, ABC's, etc so I am not worried about that stuff. We chose two days a week for financial reasons as well. She loves going to pre-school and being with the other kids. So yes, I think it is worth it.View Thread
Unfortunatley, unless she is asking you for guidance, I really don't think you can give her any. A lot of parents co-sleep. Personally, I don't agree with it. You may want to google search it to learn more. Perhaps sit down and just ask her about it. I wonder what her marriage is like if she isn't shareing a bed with her husband?View Thread
My response...duh! However, the level of arguing is the key. Parents who communicate well and can work thourgh disagreements can be a good example for children. Children learn from their parents (or who ever their role models/guardians are) and need to learn how to work through disagreements as well. However, parents who scream and yell at each other (or worse) will very negativly affect children. The child will grow up thinking that is how you interact with your spouse or other people. Growing up in a house with a lot of arguing would very stressfull. Especially if the child is afraid of the arguing being turned towards them.View Thread
We had to try different products until we found one that seemed to work. We use a petroleum based product on my son, typically just the store brand. I have heard warm baths are also effective. Have you tried switching diaper brands? Perhaps it's a reaction to the diaper or the diaper is not very good at keeping a wetness off the skin.View Thread
Hello, First of all, I am not a doctor. This site is mostly discussions between other parents. However, I do have some advice. Have you son evaluated by "early intervention." This is typically a service provide through the school district and is no cost. Contact the school district for information. If appropriate, they will provide a speech therapist and other support services. Did you talk to the doctor about your concerns at his 3 year check up? If not, give the doctor a call. She will also have some advice. My son's doctor was concerened about him not talking at 18 months! If yours is not talking at 3 years, it's time for an intervention. Good luck.View Thread
Friends send friends evites all the time. We use them for all of are parties where we are inviting our friends and their families. Our group communicates electronically and so does most of the world these days! However, I think you need to consider the group. I wouldn't use them for my family since a lot of them are not computer uses. I would go ahead and use an evite.View Thread
I just want to add, that I think that's a normal feeling. Like you say, you know he is not hurt, etc, so why would you feel bad? It's important to speak up if you need help. I know it's sometimes hard to ask. But those first few months with a new baby can be very hard. Even if you can get your husband to get up one night during the week so you can get a full nights sleep is helpful.View Thread
