frustrated scared...single mom

You are doing a fantastic job and you are a wonderful parent. All parents question whether they being good parents, it's natural. I know things are extremely tough for you but you have undoubtedly sacrificed a lot for your child. Giving up a child for adoption after 4 years will cause you so much...right age for school?

Are you planning to do any homeschooling or not? If you want to start by homeschooling, I guess you just moniter your childs progress and then choose when you think they should start according to their progress and social skills. If not and you are only planning going to school, then don't you...outgrowing baby tub--what's next?

With both our kids, once they could sit fairly well, I put the grips/non-slip things on the bottom of hte tub. I never leave them only and never had any problem or fear for them. in fact in our old house we had a huge walk in custom shower and I would just sit our daugther on the floor of the...Love & Logic

I can honestly say that this parenting system works! My husband and I have been working really hard to apply the techniques taught in the books. We've even taken a class together. The kids are more responsible and there is much less anger and frustration in our home. For example, we have 5...Mom On Strike!

Interesting perspective, wcurry, and I totally get what you mean. I suppose "demanding appreciation" isn't what I should have said. Still, I am a big proponent of asking for what you want directly rather than staying silent and then being upset when you don't get it. I also think that at a...baby co-sleeping

I co-slept with my son. I did not have him in bed with me, but instead had an Arm's Reach co-sleeper; it looks a bit like a pack'n'play with the bassinet insert, except that one side is lower and it attaches to the side of the bed. That way he was right there with me, but I didn't worry about...newborn care

Congrats :) We were told no bath until the court fell off.. I also did skin on skin with my 2 babies. I wore tanktops most of the time, so they could snuggle on my chest, smell my skin and hear my heart beat.Poor Speller and Reader-Need help

You should try homeschooling for him, that will help him alot in improving.milk for newborn?

Raven is right on. A baby shouldn't have cow's milk until after his/her first birthday so I would keep using the formula that the hospital used until you speak to your pediatrician.Creative Consequences

I agree, write the rules down with the consequence for the rule being broken. If there are a string of bad days, then take a break and do something fun together. That might sound counterproductive, but it works for many kids. Some kids act out to get the negative attention, because they do not know...I just don't know where to turn next!!!

Have you considered PTSD? Your son sounds exactly like mine. My son has been diagnosed with ADHD and ODD in the past. I finally took him to get trauma specific therapy and the intake worker said that his symptoms sound more like PTSD than anything else. His psychiatrist and psychologist both...am i a bad parent?

I have read your condition and finds that, first it's very awkward that the agency has declined you on such a small issues. Second i think you have to talk to your children and make some positive changes to avoid such problems with a single room/place. Check what is good with each and every child...You Know You Have a Toddler When . . .

:eek: I know this thread is a couple months old but, You know you have a toddler when they poop in their brand new dora panties and then hang them on the laundry room door for you. :eek: My sweet little angel left mom a present.International-Adoption: School or HOMESCHOOL?
April 6, 2013, 10:39 am
Personally I think it depends on you guys. The high school I went to was public and had quite a few foster kids/adoptees in it that were in ESL classes. Some of them were so good at English that nobody knew they were ESL students till it was time to take the exit exam (known as CASHEE here.) I...HELP!!! Arguing Driving me NUTTTTSSS!

I have done a couple of things. One thing I do on occasion for my sanity is the quiet game, I offer a dollar to the winner. Yeah, I know its' bribery. LOL, but don't look at them cause they will try to tattle with signals. I have also done the writing thing. I told them that if no one is getting...
