comment Child suddenly saying things like I'm not his friend
Thanks Michael. I don't feel any anger to those against him. I just don't want it to effect him emotionally going forward and for him to feel sad, lonely etc I'm sure he will be ok though. He is only 3 I guess :)

comment Child suddenly saying things like I'm not his friend
Cheers. I'm not really upset that he is saying these things to him. More that other kids are saying them to him meaning he is struggling to make friends, or others are being mean to him and it might effect him emotionally. Just concerned :) Thanks for the comments.

@DanBeale I guess I just get sad when I hear the I'm not your friend as I'm hoping other kids aren't being mean. Guess we can't molly coddle them though. Cheers.

comment Toddler is in bed but wakes up an hour early and walks into our room
thanks. His room is dark. At this time of year (winter) it's almost pitch black. Maybe a light might be an idea I could persue. As for sleeping in longer as a teenager. I think my problem at that age will be getting him out of bed :)

I've heard about these lights. I might look into them some more. Combined with a gate might be an option worth exploring

Great place NZ :) Thanks for the advice. He is already way more energetic than any toddler we associate with so I think his activity is pretty high. This morning I just got up and tried to doze but he wanted me to play. Will keep trying on that route I think though for now perhaps.

ummm, thanks for that. I guess I wasn't clear but he has always been a waker (at least for the last year). Is this not very long as a stage?

comment Can I help settle my child and make them enjoy nappy changing
@noelicus It seems to mainly any time he has to lie on his back, whether it be the changing, wiping or putting his clothes on. When he's active and moving he is happy.

thanks for that. We would still have to lie them down for wiping which he fights and fights. However might be better than nothing...
