Sometimes, when a baby learns something new (sitting, crawling, standing, walking) they want to do it ALL the time. They can even wake themselves up to do it at night, it is that exciting. did your children behave the same way? when sleeping, my babies would never just lay down when tired. They would cry, and when they could sit/stand do that. We had ...

13 months is not that old. My 14 month old cries if left alone in a room too long, period! (aka more than 5 min unless he is deeply engrossed in stacking something) have you considered: When she is in her room in the dark, it is separation anxiety and not fear of the dark? Does she cry when if the light is still on? How does she react to low light, like ...

The ways we handled this issue: gradually let the get used to the dark by employing low-power nightlights when the child is a little older (3-4) explain about night vision in low light and demonstrate how it works. SOMETIMES the fear of the dark is simply about fear of not seeing.

This is still getting views, so I thought I would post my own follow-up answer. In retrospect, it was quite obvious that his behavior issues were much more frequent than most children. Rather than adjusting to the rules and eventually settling in like his classmates, our son's behavior issues at school increased in severity and frequency. A year later, he ...

My son and your son are about the same age (mine is 6 1/2--he'll be 7 in February), and with school, Choi Kwong Do, and Cub Scouts, he goes to bed pretty exhausted every night. There is no time for naptime during the school year and he doesn't seem to want a nap. But every so often if he's been up extremely late the night before (like, at a sleepover) or ...

I'll do a quick read across from my examples and see what helps: My son has always needed 4-6 hours sleep a day. My middle daughter won't fall asleep until late (and gets up late) and my youngest can fall asleep at any time, but is an early riser. So for my middle daughter, she was already into 1.5 to 2 hours training every evening after school, whether it ...

Sounds pretty normal to me, at least up to a point. 3 and 17 months here, and not that different; except the 17 month old stands up to himself a bit better. We handle it in a very straightforward manner. Any toy grabbing means immediate removal of that toy from play for the day, unless that would excessively harm the wronged party if there is a clear ...

I think sitting up at this age is good for her - even if she's going to some extremes. One of the things that babies work on with sitting is their balance, and that's a precursor to walking (and crawling to some extent). It both helps them have a sense of balance, and helps strengthen their abdominal muscles, not dissimilar from an adult doing sit-ups. ...

You say you've tried time outs. I wonder if you've employed a systematic approach to this. 1-2-3 Magic is one of (if not the) most effective approaches to behavioral (self-) correction I've ever encountered. When applied correctly and consistently, it allows time outs to be applied without the parent losing their cool (very important, especially if younger ...

did your children behave the same way? One of ours did. Heck, her preferred sleeping position ranged from sleeping on her KNEES - with legs folded, head down, and butt up - to completely unnatural and painful looking something which resembled letter Z for lack of a better description, since well before 1YO can we somehow encourage more laying on her ...

I am a 13 Year old girl with extreme ADHD, and OCD. About every other day I have a fit when I don't want to do something! But I am slowing learning to control it. When she is out of controll tell her to take a break go outside on a walk or scream in her room. When I get out of control (tantrum) And I notice it I turn on spa music close my eyes and meditate. ...
