Ok so the best thing to do is to just watch, According to janetlasbury.com, they usually let the kids work out the problems themselves. Infants are free to interact and toddlers are allowed to work through conflicts safely and learn from them with minimal adult intervention. The facilitator is nearby to keep children from hurting each other. When there is a ...

This is a little too long for a comment, so I will put it as an answer. “I think the first thing you have to understand is their age,” Herman says. “You can’t rationalize with them like you would an adult. Ask about their worries,” he says, instead of telling them there’s nothing to fear. Explain that our imaginations create stories, and the stories can be ...

Our daughter vomited several times per week until she was around 5, even being primarily fed through a tube in her stomach. I know it's frustrating, but mostly you've just got to keep doing what you're doing. As a parent, you know your child better than anyone. Look out for her triggers, be creative, and be patient. Try not to judge her against typical ...

should I be approaching it differently? You say you sulk for a little while. I strongly suggest you don't. Simply disregard what your son says about not liking/loving you. Most likely, it's not true. Instead, immediately answer him with something like "well, you don't have to like me. I love you very much anyway, and always will." I don't think ...

I have an anecdote which might not really prove all that much but might help alleviate at least some peoples worries. I'm happily married live with my wife and have a lovely 6 year old daughter. We (me and my daughter) have always had what I felt was a pretty good relationship though I am usually the stricter parent. Around the age of 5 my daughter started ...

I sympathise with you. Our 1-year-old managed to slip out of her 5-point harness somehow the other week. There are after market products designed to prevent children from tampering with the mechanisms of various seat designs, but they are controversial and I personally would not buy them for the following reasons: They almost certainly have not been ...

The things we hear about "love" as a child (and adult) are confusing, conflicting, and often do not at all reflect how "love" actually feels. Radio plays songs that describe "love" as a most extreme feeling. Same for half of anything they can watch in movies or television. (Some) religion require you to "love" both ...

There's definitely a medical advice aspect to this that I can't address other than to suggest you talk to her doctors about adding feeding therapy as well as general OT. On the non-medical side of things, you can encourage her to desensitize in the natural way that most babies do- putting things in her mouth herself so it is done to her comfort level. ...

I think you are over-thinking this. The concern with screen time is not that it is actively harmful, but it takes children away from other things which would be more beneficial, including physical exercise, interaction with people, and learning to manipulate stuff in the real world. Under 2 years the (very limited) evidence is that children can't really ...

It seems like a change of environment, kids' diet and habits are impacted by surrounding. It could be temperature, number of people, other food options, noise, or lights. You need to simulate his actions and find out what he might like to eat otherwise. It should be his sleep due to a change in bed too that can impact his diet. Hope this helps.

I suggest a podcast. Kids need to feel to be talked to while they are developing a sense of interaction. Music is nice for sleep and peace but not as much for growth and development.
