Though there's a cardinal rule about not speaking ill of your ex to your son, that doesn't mean you can't discuss your own views respectfully and honestly, especially when he asks. Speak frankly about what the foundations should be for good relationships whenever he asks ...

Unless your child took the gun to school in order to threaten someone with it, or has thought about or talked about hurting someone with a real gun, I don't see why this isn't 'just about bringing a toy to school.' You might be scared, reasonably or unreasonably depending on the school and the circumstances, about someone such as a police officer mistakenly ...

I'm a foster parent, our kids are in foster care for good reasons, and yet ... they're torn and very loyal to their parents. They do a lot of lashing out at us. It takes comic forms including: You're not pretty like our mom, you don't wear enough makeup. ("Yes, your mom is very pretty." and she does wear rather a lot of makeup...) You have to use cookbooks ...

First and foremost, I would suggest you try to learn to make your very first question, always: are you ok? So if someone brushes against her and she yells that the person hit her (presumably wanting to get the other one "in trouble") ignore that part about the other person and ask "are you hurt?" "are you ok?" "does it hurt?" "do you need to come away ...

My family is gassy...maybe just tell the class instead of farting and burping they should excuse them-self and go to the bathroom. Or instruct them to try going to the bathroom before they arrive to class.

Just one more thought added to the many good answers here: Are you sure your 8yo can handle what you want him to do? Sometimes the 8yo ist "younger" or more vulnerable than the 5yo. Especially if one child is somewhat outside the norm. I have the same age constellation of kids as you do, but my son is gifted and I get the same reaction (the mechnanisms are ...
