    So my daughter goes to school (6 years old) and a boy in her class is very obsessive over her. I took many actions to letting the teacher know for them to not play together and the principle but seems like they do it for about a week and back to the way it was. This 5 year old boy is making my daughter kiss him and tries to get her to go in the bathroom with him to him even asking her to have sex with him! This is my first daughter and it's nerve wracking. What should I do if school isn't doing much about it? I tried switching her class and they can't do it. I don't know what more to do besides pull her from school. He even tells my daughter to lie just so they can play together.

  • My son (4) is eating his own feces out of the toilet. What should I do?

    He comes home from school and goes potty then I catch him eating it. I can't always watch him because I have 5 other kids older and younger in the house. What should I do?

  • Why is my 5 year old peeing herself at home and sometimes at school?

    For about 2 months things have been getting worse. Started where at school she would occasionally wet her pants.

    For about 2 months things have been getting worse. Started where at school she would occasionally wet her pants. Now it's at home she was playing with her sister in her room and found pee on the floor. She acted like nothing happened until I found out. Then she's been drawing all over her toys and toy box and so I thought maybe something was stressing her and she started talking to the school counselor and not much has changed. Then last night we cooked at our church and I stopped for a break and sat next to her. She started smiling real big at me and started peeing right there on the chair. So we got stressed out already and we woke up today and I told her to go potty and she went into the bathroom and when she came out I was going to help her put on her shoes and I noticed she peed her pants again. I confronted her about it asking her why she didn't tell me and she threw a huge tantrum. I just don't get it . Should I be concerned? Maybe her friends acted that way, maybe something happened to her or ADD please someone help. I don't know what to do anymore.

  • 15 months still not walking?

    My son is almost 16 months and still not walking. He was born a month early and was in the NICU for a month due to breathing and eating issues. He seems to be very healthy now and has a hearty appetite. He crawled before he turned one. He still crawls and is very good at it. He can pull himself up on furniture and actually like to go to doors stand against them and open shut them. He does stand on his tippy toes most of the time which concerns me. We saw his pediatrician a few weeks ago and she seemed concerned telling us it could be cerebral palsy. Ever since I have been stressing out. He seems normal and healthy. He cruises along furniture and even climbs stairs like a pro. I try to hold his hands and walk but again he uses his tippy toes. He has taken a few steps by himself but will just fall to his buttons. I practice a lot with him. Somedays he will cooperate and try. Somedays he just doesn't care and just crawls as if he has no interest. He seems very strong just no Interest and maybe hard time balancing. He can also walk pretty good with a push toy. Again he only does it occasionally. He is a busy body and yet I'm still worried about his walking. I'm worried he will be confined to a wheel chair for the rest of his life. Has anyone else ever experienced a late Walker? Should I be concerned or over thinking also I am guilty of over using and excersaucer in the past. I do let him crawl everywhere now though.

    Over the past 2 weeks I have been gradually weaning my 3 year old daughter, she was doing great until we went to a friends place the other night! My friend has a daughter a few months older than mine, she's still nursing too. She did nurse while we were there, my daughter watched intently and then proceeded to cry for milk. I stood my ground and didn't allow her. At home (mid temper tantrum) she told me it wasn't fair that ____ got milk and she didn't... My friends daughter is special needs, she's about a head shorter than mine and hasn't even started talking yet. She is 3.5 years old, but mentally, physically and emotionally still a baby. She nurses more than she eats solid food. How do I explain this to my toddler? She knows that the two of them are the same age, she said "why do I have to be a big girl but she doesn't?" I'm a little stuck!!

  • I just came home for the holidays for a month. My 16 year old sister is so disrespectful. My mom is a push over. Should I step in???

    I'm a 37 year old male. She has no disclipline. She wanted to get her third ear piercing and my mom said no and she threw a temper tantrum for like 30 minutes. She was actually on the floor crying and stomping her feet like a five year old. What should I do?

    My son turned two in August and he is barely in 18 months clothes. Which he's always been small for his age even when I was breastfeeding, then switching to formula at 9 months. He used to be pretty good at eating what I made him up until maybe 6-8 months ago. All he eats now is cheetos, string cheese, peanut butter crackers, sometimes yogurt and bananas, and hazelnut spread sandwiches. When he turned 1 I started giving him ensures to help him fatten up (2 a day) but after I realized he was filling up on those And not eating much i cut down to only giving him one at night so he would be hungry and eat. He literally won't eat anything that is not on that list he throws a fit and won't try anything! Even kid friendly food like Mac and cheese, nuggets, hot dogs. Not even one bite. And I've let it go on this long because I didn't wanna not give in and him miss a meal because he's so skinny every calorie counts. But it's gone on too long and I'm really ready for him to eat real food, because I'm thinking the diet he's living off of now is playing a part in him being so small. Have any of you dealt with a toddler like this? I'm wanting to try offering him something and not let him having anything else all day like scrambled eggs and if he don't eat them for breakfast offer it for ever meal until he gets hungry enough to eat it. Has this worked for any of you? And any other ideas for weight gain I'm open to as well. I just want my baby to fatten up :(

  • My baby cousin is not talking?

    He’s about 3 years old now and I’m getting concerned because most kids talk during that age but he doesn’t say a single word to interact with us, he knows all the abc’s, the numbers, colors and all that he says that. But he doesn’t interact or have a conversation with us and i don’t know what the problem is

    The first amendment guarantees freedom of speech and the 8th protects from unfair punishment. I had my art grade halved because my teacher didn’t like my drawing. I had a drawing of the sky becoming red in the evening with the setting sun in the center of the canvas and a black 4 petaled pinwheel silhouette in front of the sun. The teacher found it “offensive” and cut my grade in half. In a way this is a violation of my first amendment rights and my 8th amendment right

  • Is it completely normal to want to kill my sister?

    Best answer: No, it's not "completely" normal to want to kill your sister. It's not even a little normal.
    I have a sister, and we got into quite a few arguments/fights growing up, but not once did I want to kill her.
    It's also not normal for your sister to hit you for no reason.

    I work for a family during the weekends. Typically Fri-Sat. I've worked with them for about 2 years. But lately I feel that I can't work for them anymore. It seems every week she is cancelling at least one or two days at the very last minute. Which results in no pay for me. I often decline engagements and put aside time just for her. And its affecting my livelihood. She does pay me in advance but I work off that money depending on how many hours I work that day. I've been very flexible and lenient about this. Because I'm afraid of upsetting her and losing my job. I'm afraid of asking her to compensate for last minute cancellations on bookings. Because most parents don't feel that babysitters should be paid for time not worked. I've already discussed this with her. That these last minute cancellations are causing me to struggle. And she tells me that I have to understand that she has a lot going on with her personal life. I don't understand how this affects me cause most of the cancellations are because of vacations and parties. She offered to pay me more in advance but that doesn't really work when I'm not working that money off at all. My question is. Should I talk to her about it again and asked to be compensated for last minute cancellations. Or should I just let it go and find another family to work for? I felt I've said enough already and nothing has changed. Also, how do I set up a cancellation fee policy with new families? Any contracts I can print out?
