Behavior in Kindergarten

My son just started Kindergarten last week. So far he has been on red 4 out of 5 days!!! He is extremely defiant towards the teacher. His behavior at home is not like this. I mean he's no angel, but he has his moments. I have noticed today he became very defiant towards me when we were practicing his numbers. His behavior is getting out of contol. Help

Biting at Daycare

My 2 year old daughter starting biting at daycare. She has never had a biting problem before so I was very concerned as to what is bringing this on. The daycare said that they are having issues with other kids biting and she probably learned it from them. She bit twice last week and I tried time out and grounded her the second time from anything fun we do and dessert. I thought that had worked, but then today she bit twice and she got bit twice…..I left work early and went to pick her up to show her how serious it is. She seems to think...

What to Do About the Bully

My daughter has had a problem with a certain girl at school for 2 years now. They are both in 2nd grade. I have talked to the principle about the issues and thought it had been resolved but the little girl keeps seeking my daughter out to make fun of her clothes, hair, shoes etc... The problem is is that the little girls mom is an employee at the school. The little girl was suppose to get detention but that some how slipped through the cracks and she never did serve it and she knows it. She tells my daughter that all her mom has to do is...

Grounding a Child from Church

If a child misbehaves, would you consider grounding them from church? I don't have children yet, but I remember being grounded from church once when I was a teenager. As a Christian woman, I am against grounding children from church. I feel that it sends the message that God isn't where to turn to in times of trouble. When I was a kid, I didn't like going to church. I went because my mom made me go. I realized how important church was when I was in my late teens and as I became an adult. When I have children, they will go to church...

Teenager Disrespectful to Me

My 14 year old daughter is very disrespectful to me and not understanding why. Don't know if disrespectful is the word I am looking for however she just doesn't want to listen to me and says I am unfair. I know that I am doing to right thing and certainly am not unfair but why do I feel so bad? She got bad grades on report card so I punished her from staying at friends house; standing my ground and not giving in - that makes me unfair? I feel so bad when I see the love with other daughters and their parents. Is anyone else having this...

Do Your Friends Have Your Back?

My oldest daughter has sooo many friends, my oldest son has a few. One time my daughter said she would give anything to have friends like Tommy, friends that have his back. Honestly I think they would help him hide a body if he produced one in his trunk. Be kind of silly mind you since he works for his grandpa's funeral home, if anyone could get rid of a body... I digress... So are you like my daughter, a lot of friends, or more like my son, a few friends that have your back?

16-Month Old Hitting Others

My 16-month-old daughter has been hitting other toddlers in daycare and hitting me, her father, and our rabbit. She does it in a playful way--she's always smiling and happy--but when I tell her "no hitting" or "please be gentle" or "be nice" and take her hand and gently stroke or pat the rabbit, she gets upset and then seems to hit out of anger. She is not a bully, but I really want to stop this hitting habit in its tracks. Any suggestions?

Promoting Positive Self-Esteem in Girls

I may be overanalyzing this based on my own past, but I wanted to hear from other moms of little girls out there to find out if I am handling my 4-year old and her recent behaviors well! She seems to be a lot more aware of what female images she finds "pretty" lately and I want to be sure I am promoting her own self-esteem so she doesn't go through the degree of body and image issues I did as a teenager and young woman. For example, when she was recently working on her letters in a Barbie activity book, she was saying which Barbie faces...

Social Phobia, Me Again.

As a child I was a social outcast, a nerd. I was overweight, had horrible acne, bad perm, oversized, thick glasses. I was a mess. I was a complete introvert but managed to have a few friends. One became my best friend and was very loyal to me. She moved away when we were in highschool but as adults we still talk every few months. I was depressed a lot during the teen years. Once I lost the weight, my skin cleared up, and I got contacts, I felt slightly more confident. My reputation for being a nerd followed me into high school as I...

Is This a Tantrum?

Recently, my 16 month old son has started crying much more frequently than he used to. It used to be that if he wanted something and we took it away, he'd cry but then stop soon if we held him, distracted him, etc. Now, if he wants something and can't get it, he puts both of his little hands to his mouth and cries pitifully!! I always thought tantrums were angry crying, kicking, screaming, etc. but this is just plain sad crying!! It breaks my heart and I'm tearing up even remembering how he looked as I write this. I try to hold him and...
