comment Which is better - a Minivan or a SUV - for a 4 kid family
Minivans are awesome. Not only do I carry my whole family in it but I can move furniture and anything else. If you have more than 2 kids, you cannot go wrong with a van :) I like my Honda Odyssey..

comment 3yr old refuses to sleep without me
@Erica, good idea, I was on my phone with minimum brightness. I felt the nightlight would drown out the light but maybe it was making her anxious even though she wasn't moving so I will try a book.

comment 3yr old refuses to sleep without me
So I did start this process kinda last night. Currently we lay down together in our bed. Last night I laid her down in her bed, and I did not lay down with her. Instead I sat down near the door while she was laying down. She did not like it much... but she did eventually lay down. I was there for an hour and she didn't go to sleep. Though I consider it a win that i went so long without having to lay down with her. I will try and repeat this every night and work into the leaving the room part. I'll keep you updated. In the end, she ended up in our bed, but it was a small step forward.

I can handle the crying (sorta) but she does blood curdling screams and comes out of the room constantly :/

comment 3yr old refuses to sleep without me
@Ida, good question. She just started doing it this past week. I have to lay back down so she can go back to sleep. I have been lucky for the past 2 nights but she did it 4 days in a row last week.

I like this answer, I will give it a try and see if we have any luck. I will probably let this stay open for a week and mark the best answer to see if anyone has other good feedback.

comment Son 22 asks me how to deal with a friend with benefits, so that she does not get hurt
Tell him to check out David D'Angelo he will have plenty of great valuable advise. Careful though his stuff works well, landed my friend with benefits into being my wife with children of 8yrs, lmao.

comment 5 yr old son behaving sexually
I have 2 boys, and they loved running around naked, they are 10 and 11 and I still have to fight with them half the time to put some cloths on. They displayed sexual behavior when they were around 5 yrs old but it has for the most part subsided. I would say most of what you have described is normal but the mounting part would raise concern for me. I would recommend letting his pediatrician know and see what they recommend. It could just be curiosity, but how would he know hes supposed to do what he was trying to do? I agree with filing a report if abuse is discovered.

comment Should I stop my mother in law visiting when she doesn't respect me as the father figure?
Our answer was to send ours away. Though this is more on my wife and her parents. They have caused us great hardship by undermining us and making us walk on egg shells with disipline. September 1st they are moving 400 miles away... counting the days..
