  • My 3 year old toddler never listens to me?

    She also never stays still and gets angry when I disclipine her. I’m at my wits end. I end up yelling to her and have to restrain myself from spanking her. How do I cope?

  • My little girl is a spoiled brat?

    My 15 year old daughter has a perfectly good Nokia phone and she asked for the iPhone 5 for Christmas, she is also saying all her friends have the iPhone 7 or 8 plus.

    My 15 year old daughter has a perfectly good Nokia phone and she asked for the iPhone 5 for Christmas, she is also saying all her friends have the iPhone 7 or 8 plus. Honestly she thinks I'm made of money. She wants Instagram and Snapchat on her iPad but I've already told her, it's for studying only. She is friends with juvinile delinquins who go out without adults, use social media, wear makeup and listen to pop music. She really wants to do these things, but I think social media is unsuitable for under eighteens, pop music is offensive and inappropriate. Last week, for her birthday her friend got her a tube of lip gloss, my child kept saying "Mom it's just clear lip gloss! I'm not gonna die!" honestly, she is so rude and cheeky. She clains she is depressed and "has no life" but she needs to accept this or move out. She is very spoiled and ungrateful, what should I do about this?

    My son is 3-years-old and he seems a lot different than other kids. He has so much anxiety and is afraid of everything. I try and take him somewhere fun, and he will be afraid to show excitement. He will be in a bad mood the entire time, want to be held and just shows so much anxiety. He will also whine the whole time. I see other kids his age running around without a worry in the world. He goes to a daycare which is also set up as a preschool. His teacher told me that she’s worried about him. He’s been there for 3 months and he won’t talk to his teachers at all & hardly responds to them.They ask him a question and he always says “yes” no matter what. The question could be “what color is this?” And he will just say “yes”.. he doesn’t do that at home, he will answer a question correctly. Whenever we go to a party or get together, he will tense up and cry and want to leave. He is afraid of adults. He is always just SO worried, so stressed and so afraid. I’m not sure why he is this way, we have never abused him. We have taken him out around people since he was a baby and we have done so much to try and make him happy. Should I take him to a psychologist?

  • My child literally refuses to wash?

    Best answer: This is not normal. Something has happened to traumatize your child. You should not force her into the water, but you do need to be firm about her maintaining proper hygiene. Why not, during a calm, non bath time moment, talk to her and ask her to please give you an explanation as to why she doe snot want to get... show more
    Best answer: This is not normal. Something has happened to traumatize your child. You should not force her into the water, but you do need to be firm about her maintaining proper hygiene. Why not, during a calm, non bath time moment, talk to her and ask her to please give you an explanation as to why she doe snot want to get wet because you want to understand.

    Perhaps she got a nose full of water or choked on water or maybe forgot to hold her breath and inhaled some water once. Perhaps someone pushed her into the water (tub, shower, lake, pond, pool) and that traumatized her. God forbid, maybe someone inappropriately touched her and she is afraid. Maybe she is shy and does not want to be seen naked.

    She is afraid and she needs your understanding. At the same time she needs to learn about keeping her body clean. I would strike up a compromise with her and tell her that you expect her to choose a bath or a shower and in between either, you will provide her with wet wipes (made for this purpose, not the baby diaper kind). Work WITH her, not against her.

  • Is he expecting too much from a 2½ year old.?

    My stepfather (Andy) has a 26 yo son (Jake) who is in the Air Force. He wasn't able to get leave for Xmas but he came back home with his 2½ yo son (James). His wife had to work so he came with just his son. He got in last night and two things happened today that makes me think he expects too much from James for his age. First was at breakfast this morning. We were at a restaurant after we are James and Mom and Andy kept talking and drinking coffee. James wanted to go. I got it I did too! Anyway he started whining and Jake said "That's enough!" When James kept it up, Jake said he was about to lower the boom on him. That did it. Then after that we went to a 99 cent store to get some stuff Jake forgot to bring and there was this stuffed reindeer that James wanted and he started crying. Jake got down on James level and said "I said no. Put it back. If you embarrass me, you'll be in big trouble." I was like Jeez! I'll get it for him. Jake said that option ended when he started crying. The kid isn't even 3 years old yet. I know Jake is military and has to do what he's told without complaining and he expects those under him to do what they're told without complaint. But he expects a toddler to be as mature as full grown men. That's a lot of pressure for the kid. Okay, I should point out that most of the time Jake is great with James. Last night when James fell asleep, Jake picked him up put him on his shoulder and put him to bed without waking him up.

  • Should a wall be built around Trump?

    Best answer: Certainly. An excellent idea that should be part of the next budget. We can build it out of all the bricks he has excreted while tweeting about Mueller.

    Best answer: Yes, thirteen month olds tend to do that. Especially thirteen month olds who just experienced a major life change like the birth of a new sibling and the sudden need to share mommy/daddy.

    Your one year old is too young for a lot of the “tricks” used to help older siblings with a new baby, such as talking up the perks of being older, make him feel important by “helping” with the baby, etc. He’s barely more than a baby himself.

    Make sure he still has one-on-one time with you. Keep his routines consistent and (as much as possible) the same as before the new baby was born. (I.e. if he usually got a bottle at bedtime, now is not the time to wean him. If he slept in your room, don’t move him to his own room now. Etc.) Be patient with him through this transition. And maybe read up on child development so you know what to expect at different ages/stages.

  • What are some good free or cheap ideas/games to keep visiting children entertained during the holidays?

    Idea for Christmas or winter themed games so the kids don't get bored, some for them to play alone but some the adults can join in too. Nothing that lasts for hours as the children are all young.

    Experienced answers only please, and also no judgements. My 9 year old son was diagnosed with ADHD 3 years ago. Every morning The school gives him his pill around 9:00am because if given early, it wears out before school is finished and this way he is calm and can focus till at least 5:00pm. Before you ask, we do have an appointment but it’s not till February so I’m desperate for answers. Apparently the paediatrician is out of the office for holidays and his is the only one within 70km. So he’s been on the same pills for three years. The pills cause him to not be able to sleep at night so at the paediatricians recommendation, we’ve been giving melatonin. I have no idea if this is what is causing his angry mornings. I plan on stopping his melatonin tonight to see if that makes a difference at all. His anger started about two months ago but he’s been taking melatonin for about a year now. Basically, he comes out of his room stomping his feet, making frowning face at everyone who crosses him. If you instruct him to eat breakfast, get dressed or anything, he screams a quick bark at you. All manners are out the window. And the way he talks to everyone is extremely disrespectful. I have tried grounding, spanking, time outs, removing his favourite toys. Of course this just ends up in an explosion and jumping, kicking, screaming.... I really need help.
