I am a 40 year old mother of a sixteen month old daughter, my first daughter. I also have one son, age sixteen years. Are any of you also the older mother of a very young daughter? If so, do you also occasionally get comments at...

At what age do you think it would be okay to let a child babysit their own younger siblings? My oldest is going to be 12 soon... that's definitly too young. He's not very mature, and most of the time I don't trust him home...

autismmom2 In our case it would depend on the other person's disability/issue. My children are autistic, so my 8 year old would stare at your leg as she walked up to you, point and ask very loudly what it was, or what's wrong with you. I might let her ask you as long as...

When I was young I suffered migraines and one of the things that caused this was cheese. If you eat something and it makes you bad you dont eat it again. So I never eat cheese. I find it very awkward though especially when we...

So your house is beyond destroyed, and now the kids that refuse to clean it, or help, are home ALL WEEK! I've been working with a behavioral therapist to address my son's compliance issues. In the meantime, I still need to get the...

My toddler son has spina bifida. As a result his legs are weak. It took him a long time to be able to crawl and for ages he did that combat style. Now he can do normal crawling and then kneel up. My dogs sit on my sofa and my...

autismmom2 My kiddos are autistic, and my son is also very aggressive. To some this may seem like nothing; We were at the park the other day and this kid kept messing with my son. I honestly would have beated this kid he was so annoying! My son just stood there with this...

My son is 6 years old and has Autism. He doesn't sleep. It's driving me insane. He's up until 1, sometimes 2 in the morning. Which, paired with his 730 waking time in the morning makes both of us cranky and makes him have a lot of...

UGH! It is something that I hate to do because I would rather be outside, so I have devised a plan that will get my spring cleaning done without wasting a whole day to do it. I plan to do one room each day until I am done. I...

I always pack my daughter's lunch for school in the morning. There have been a couple of times when I packed it at night before I went to bed. I must have had extra energy on those nights. It just makes the morning so much easier...

autismmom2 I would also think sleep apnea. That's when you stop breathing long enough for your brain to wake you up to breathe and go back to sleep. Since your body is waking all night, you're tired during the day. I used to be beyond tired all day, but couldn't fall...

Do you think this practice is good. It doesn't take no time to heat water in a pot to heat the bottle rather than micro wave it. I do not think if I had a new born baby I would use the micro wave to heat the bottle. I visited a...
