Seeking Advice Concerning Behavior

I have a wonderful little boy who'll be 4 in June who has been having a lot of difficulty with acting out at preschool. His teachers have had to spend a lot of time and energy re-directing him, and when they ask him to do something, his first response has been "No!". This week he actually started hitting, kicking and spitting at some kids when they told him that he couldn't join them in playing with a puzzle. He acted the same way with 2 different teachers, who then called in the director who was able to talk with him and mellow him out. My...

Teen Daughter Disrespectful

I am divorced and have a 13 year old daughter. My boyfriend has moved in with us. She and I had discussed his moving in prior to him doing so and at first they got along well. Now, they bicker constantly and put me in the middle. My daughter is manipulative at times and uses my guilt to get her way. She is spoiled, an only child and is used to getting my full attention. I spend time alone with her and do "girl time" with her often. It just sometimes doesn't seem enough and she complains that she feels "neglected". I don't know what...

How Does Your Husband Treat You? Respect Issue

Okay Ladies and Gents: Please bear with me as I try to get this out and organized so that you have enough information to answer either from experience or what you can see from my posting. I'm on the phone today with one of my dear girlfriend's. She is sick and her husband is being a jerk. This isn't something new. My husband has known him for over 25 years - they worked together in Dayton, Ohio. He was VERY hard on her son, but in hindsight, even the son says it was a good thing because it drove him to prove him wrong and now he's got a...

Daddy and Toddler Tantrums

Lately it seems that I am dealing with more than my three year olds tantrums. My husband gets just as wound up about her behavior and is so quick to respond by sending her to her room for what seems to me "everything". He yells, she yells the house is full of yelling!!! I am an elementary educator and am able to ignore behaviors and have patience. My husband tells me that I ignore too much and am not disciplining enough. My daughter is an unbelievable screamer. I wonder if our neighbors think we are hurting her. Some days, I think...

Toddler Sleep Issues After Car Accident.

About three weeks ago my 2 1/2 -year-old son climbed out of his crib for the first time, so we promptly converted it to a toddler bed. I expected the usual difficulties, but the transition went perfectly. He LOVED his "big boy bed" and was so proud to sleep in it. We had very little trouble getting him to stay in bed and sleep all night or during nap time. Then he and my husband were in a car accident a week later. My son was completely physically safe in the accident (which was severe enough to total our car) but he was absolutely...
