Is there any way of putting the sides back on to the cribs? At this age, it's not the greatest idea to have them be able to run around. Or are they toilet trained already and need the access? Another idea you can try is to convince them you have a magic mommy/daddy camera that can see when they come out of bed and or do mischief. After putting them down for ...

My son was born under nearly identical circumstances, and has had very similar behavior challenges. I would caution you to avoid attributing all his behavior to the circumstances of his birth. That leads you to view it as an unavoidable part of who he is, when really it's something he can work on and improve over time. His birth likely played a factor, ...

Sounds like typical 4 year old behavior, to me. You have a smart kid, one you can be proud of, who knows how to behave in certain settings but doesn't when with you. When with you, he feels safe enough to let himself show how he's really feeling. That's a good thing, for all that it's aggravating. I understand it's a touchy subject, but since you asked for ...

I'd like to start by saying that I'm sorry you are having such a rough time with your son. It's my understanding, from the information that up provided, that he is the youngest? Being the youngest can be hard. It seems they either get left feeling out a lot or they are allowed to misbehave much longer than the rest because they're seen as "the baby" for so ...

As @agoodnurse says, there's not enough information. Starting with school, most six year old's have can't focus on things for long, unless he is seriously below national targets don't let it bother you and as to being held back a year, the positive side of it is he'll be well in advance of the kids who will join his class. Lying, that's about discovering ...

First I would like to say I'm very sorry that you are dealing with this. I delt with this issue a lot with my boys at the same age. I would love to have some sort of fix-it-all answer for you, but I don't. However, I do have some advice as to what NOT to do which I learned through my own experiences. 1) Stop beating YOURSELF up...we all do it. Parental ...

What does your SO think about the behaviour? You have a better chance to change your daughter's behaviour if you stand united and both try to change her. I think you should try talking to your daughter about her behaviour and ask her to change and if she doesn't you need to take some actions like don't give her money, won’t buy soda for her and so on.

I'd say make sure that she knows everything about contraception. That she takes condoms with her - I'd insist on that; if the subject is embarrassing her that's good to know but still insist. On the other hand explain to her that a male wanting sex without having contraception with him himself is useless and must be avoided. Make it clear to her that a baby ...

It gets easier with time, first time I encountered a situation like this I was like you, what I learned from it was "fair active control & engagement". Subsequent times I've been in a similar situation, children (older or younger) who I don't know, want to participate in a game with my kids, is to take control of the game, engage all the kids (including ...
