This is a good question. I had this problem a while back. I found out that my kids were dead but I still have their bodies in my house.

It is good to hear you want to help your wife. I have 4 children aged 3 and under plus 2 older so I understand. If you and your wife have family that could help out in any way whilst you are at work then let them help don't feel guilty as the adjusting period won't last for long. If you take lunch to work prepare it yourself, the same with breakfast and ...

If such an activity existed, you would have found it by now, like you did with your son. You don't need an excuse to spend time with your daughter one-on-one. Just tell the other kids it's her turn, and remind them of when they had their turns. You don't have to make it elaborate, or even the same thing every time. Just pick something she likes. My ...

My initial reaction was to wonder whether you could work out a way to bring your daughter along on the haircut outing, perhaps have her reading or chatting in a chair while she waits. However, not only patience a challenge for some five year olds, I think it is valuable to have "alone time" with each child. If your son enjoys his special Daddy outing, your ...

What I like is that you are doing something that has to be done anyway and make it into a "special" daddy-son thing. Just add a little twist to make it special. So logically, a special daddy-daughter thing should -if I read your question correctly - follow the same pattern, right? So what else do you do about once a month? Going to the car wash or ...

be explicit about how much you enjoy your time with him, and explain that it's her turn now. I like that idea, but I can sympathize with your dilemma, so here's an idea -- how about if you take her to the "beauty parlor" once a month. Now, there's nothing to say you have to have an appointment at the hair salon that often. (Although you can certainly ...

My only suggestion is establish a routine.. Get the kids in bed at the same time every single day.. I started reading to my kids after work and before their bed time. They get a solid 15min (or more) then I walk em through brushing their teeth and getting ready for bed. I have em until they are all in their Pj's and then mom and me put em in bed together.. ...

Recent studies have suggested that knowing a lot about their family history --both good and bad --increases a child's resilience and ability to deal with difficult situations. The reason, perhaps, is it gives them some context for the events of their own lives. Given that, I would tell your child some age-appropriate version of the truth. Since reading ...

my son is the same, brilliant, plays most musical instruments, but has horrible social anxiety and severe depression.You must push gently or he will feel overwhelmed, most real life responsibilities already overwhelm them much more than someone who is not sick. keep feeding him and taking care of him, encourage him to do chores for money, slowly work into a ...

I am Indian. In India, co-sleeping is common, and children can hear parents having sex. Children don’t know what is bad or good. If they see their parents having sex, and the parents don’t freak out or panic, then I think the child will not panic as either. Consider if a child saw his mom/dad taking a bath. If mom/dad tells their child. “honey, do you want ...

My answer comes from my own online research from people who may not be professionals, as well as my own experiences and opinion. I am not a professional in NPD nor have I ever talked with one or been professionally diagnosed. I myself have a few self-diagnosed narcissistic tendencies: I tend to give myself massive amounts of self-esteem (possibly ...
