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 ...

Anyone have any thoughts on this? My thoughts: Bella has gone through a lot and is facing more change. She is 6 years old. She needs some people to love her, to hear her, and to react lovingly. By lovingly, I don't mean ignoring her exaggerations, which are clearly an attempt to get attention. By lovingly, I mean doing the hard work of looking at our ...

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 ...

I would agree about the need to continue to learn to write over type. Most schools are now using tablets (ipads or android) rather than laptops, so young kids aren't yet learning typing. I can attest as a current PhD student that iPads are inadequate for note taking. You can "half" type, "half" write, and there are a million apps for note taking. But ...

Your friend is completely out of line by not allowing your child to physically restrain the 2 year old to avoid being hit. This is a perfectly reasonable, non-aggressive response. If the 2 year old doesn't like it, then she will eventually learn that it is her hitting behavior which is causing this undesirable outcome (being restrained). Your friend is ...

What I feel like most people do not understand is, how cruel children can be. Some kids just go nuts once they find somebody to pick on. Kids don't need to be reasonable about bullying. There is an enormous pressure on those kids to just blend in. And no, that is not even something you should talk him out of. And you should definitely not challenge him about ...

Hey I am in high school and know exactly how your son feels. My mom recently started to volunteer at my school and it's so horrible. Please just understand for this generation's youth that we still love you guys as our parents but it's different at school. School is our time to be with our friends and chill and unwind from all the problems or whatever at ...
